gtrain.jpgUpdate: The Gothamist Newsmap has identified the two people struck by a train at Hoyt-Schermerhorn station as transit workers. The commenter below points out that it looks like at least one death at the Hoyt-Schermerhorn station with someone trapped between the platform and a train. A transit worker was killed earlier this week at the Columbus Circle station.

Something bad is happening on the G train. Service has been suspended in both directions between the Smith and 9th St. station in Brooklyn and the Long Island City-Court Square station in Queens. We are receiving reports of as many as a dozen fire trucks appearing at the Hoyt-Schermerhorn station. The MTA is only reporting the service disruption, but with no specifics. If we hear more, we'll let you know. Anyone with more info, feel free to pass it along. [daveh(at)]
