Second NYC Subway Derailment in a Month

(INTELLIGENCER) , July 22, 2017 — A car on a southbound Q train jumped the rails near Brighton Beach in Brooklyn.

Another day, another subway disaster. A southbound Q train derailed near Brighton Beach in Brooklyn in the middle of the Friday-morning rush. According to the MTA, the wheels on the second car of the Q train skidded off the rails shortly before 9 a.m. No one was injured, and a “reach train” backed in behind the derailed train, and those riders (about 135, according to NY1) were walked through and got out at the Brighton Beach station, according to MTA interim executive director Veronique Hakim.
