The Long Island Rail Road advised commuters that an NJ Transit derailment in Penn Station will likely impact the afternoon commute.

According to the Associated Press,  NJ Transit says a Midtown Direct train had a slow-speed
derailment after departing New York’s Penn Station at 10:50 a.m. Monday.

All 300 passengers were reportedly safe and walked back to the station.

 The derailment also closed Amtrak Empire service between New York and Croton Harmon.
