Early Thursday morning, a car on an N train derailed in between the Atlantic Avenue and DeKalb Avenue in Brooklyn, causing delays along the D, N, and R lines.
Just before 3:45 a.m., when the subway is not in service to the public, the wheels of a northbound N train's second car derailed 1000 feet north of the Atlantic Avenue station, the MTA said. The agency said there were no injuries and that an investigation was underway into the cause.
The NYC subway system is available to passengers between 5 a.m. until 1 a.m. during the pandemic. There were apparently three MTA workers on the train at the time of the derailment.
In September, an A train derailed at a Manhattan subway station after a person allegedly placed debris on the tracks.
Update: NYC Transit interim president Sarah Feinberg said that service was restored at 2:49 p.m.
"We are grateful to the dedicated men and women in the department of subways who worked diligently to restore full service following this morning’s incident," she said in a statement. "The incident train was rerailed at 12:03 p.m. and removed to Coney Island yard for further evaluation. Repairs were made to the third rail and to address other damage, after which a test train was run over impacted rails without issue."
