Authorities say two New York City subway work trains have collided in a tunnel, injuring one person.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says the trains “bumped into each other” Wednesday morning but didn’t derail. The agency says one MTA worker is being treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
Fire department officials say firefighters removed one person from the Manhattan side of a tunnel under the East River after the accident occurred around 5:10 a.m.
Media outlets report that the trains collided in the 53rd Street tunnel that carries passenger trains between Manhattan and Queens. That stretch of tunnel has been undergoing repairs.
