A Long Island Rail Road train derailed Saturday night after it hit a work train on the tracks in western Long Island, shutting down the popular New York-area commuting line.
A spokesman for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says 11 people have been taken to hospitals. He says none of the injuries are life-threatening.
The Democratic governor says about 600 people were on the train when it crashed.
LIRR spokesman Sal Arena says the first three cars of the 12-car train derailed. He says the work train caught fire after the crash.
The derailment happened at around 9:15 p.m. ET near New Hyde Park between Jamaica and Hicksville.
Posts on Twitter showed photos and short video clips of a heavily damaged train car and emergency service vehicles on the scene.
Train service has been suspended in both directions.
The crash comes just weeks after a massive train crash in Hoboken, N.J., that left one woman dead and 108 passengers injured.
