Delays on Metro-North New Haven line due to minor derailment

The derailment happened around 5 p.m., as a couple of cars came off the tracks.

A Metro-North Railroad commuter train derailed near Rye, New York, Thursday evening, the MTA said.

An MTA spokeswoman says the westbound train carrying 185 passengers was approaching the station when five cars went off the tracks.

Numerous 185 passengers aboard the Stamford to Grand Central train suffered bumps and bruises as they were jolted from their seats.

Transportation officials are investigating the cause of the accident.

The officials said that this was the first of the attached properties of Mallya that was taken into possession by the agency. In the wake of a massive operation to recover Rs. 8,191 crore he owes to Indian banks, Mallya fled to Britain in March 2016.

Additionally, those traveling "inbound" to Grand Central will use the "outbound" platform to New Haven, and vice versa. Speeds were also reduced through the area.

Some passengers tweeted that a normal 40-minute ride ended up taking almost two hours.

The MTA said it's optimistic it will be a "relatively normal" commute for Metro-North riders on Friday morning.

They described it as a slow-speed, minor derailment. The train was traveling south bound.
