NEW YORK - Two subway trains collided on the Upper West Side of New York City on Thursday afternoon, resulting in derailment of one train and multiple injuries.

"There is a major disruption to 1/2/3 service while emergency teams assist passengers and conduct an investigation after a train derailed near 96 St. There is no 1/2/3 service in most of Manhattan," the Metropolitan Transportation Authority said in a post on X.

A commuter train rear-ended a work train near the 96th Street Station around 3 pm, and eight people were taken to hospitals with injuries, according to local media reports.
