Thirty-seven people were reported injured after a Long Island Rail Road train derailed on Wednesday morning at the Atlantic Terminal in Brooklyn, New York.
The New York City Fire Department said all injuries reported are non-life threatening.
Pictures on Twitter showed the train was tipped slightly to the side.
Fire officials at the scene Wednesday said metal that appeared to be from a rail pierced the bottom of the train and the wheels lifted up. They said the crash also damaged a work area beyond the tracks.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the train was moving very slowly. He said it "wasn't really a derailment."
Eleven of the injured were taken to hospitals. Officials at the scene estimated that 600 to 700 people were on the train.
