Posted on by Timothy Hare

A LIRR train has derailed in the Atlantic and Flatbush Avenue area of Brooklyn, with initial reports suggesting 32 people were being treated for injuries. The derailment happened at the Atlantic Terminal according to NBC and WPIX11.

Pictures on twitter showed the derailment took place on track 6, and that the train was tipped slightly at an angle.

The platform also appeared to be smoky.

As of 8:50 a.m. the MTA did not have any information on its website, NBC reported.

“I don’t know, all I remember is being on the floor,” one visibly shaken woman who had been on the train told NBC 4 New York between tears. Several people complained of neck and back injuries, though overall most wounds appeared minor.

Passengers described the train pulling into the station, followed by a crash and a loud boom, after which the train’s doors opened.
