Queens: LIRR Trains Play Tag

LIRR Trains Collide in Queens
LIRR Train Derails at Jamaica Station

NEW YORK (AP) -- Two Long Island Rail Road trains bumped each other at Jamaica Station causing one train to derail and tying up eastbound service for nearly one hour.

None of the 300 passengers on the two trains was injured, said railroad spokeswoman Susan McGowan.

Villarroel said passengers were checked at the platform as they got off the train.
Thankfully no one was killed or injured. I'm sure there will be a few Personal Injury lawsuits coming shortly.
