April 3 (UPI) -- Officials with New Jersey's NJ Transit public transportation system on Monday suspended rail services in and out of New York's Penn Station due to a derailment that injured four people.
A NJ Transit train arriving from Trenton to Pennsylvania Station, or Penn Station, derailed at a slow speed during the busy rush-hour commute. The NEC, NJCL, RVL and Midtown Direct lines are temporarily suspended.
New York Fire Department officials reported four people were injured, though the severity of the injuries was unknown.
NJ Transit said it will cross honor tickets through the transport system until further notice, including with NY Waterway -- a ferry traveling from New York to New Jersey.
NJ Transit said the NEC, NJCL and RVL train service will operate to and from Newark and Secaucus where customers may look for alternate transport into New York. MidTown Direct trains are being diverted to Hoboken.
The NJ Transit derailment on Monday follows Amtrak's Acela Express Train 2151 train derailment at Penn Station on March 24, which caused no injuries but disrupted services.
