A subway train derailed in Manhattan Sunday after a man allegedly threw construction debris at it.
An uptown A train was pulling into the 14th Street and Eighth Avenue station shortly after 8 a.m. when the first car ran over debris, causing one of the wheels to come off the tracks.
The incident caused all four tracks to lose power.
Investigators say at least three people suffered minor injuries.
First responders evacuated about 30 people from the train.
A 30-year-old man was arrested in connection to the incident.
New York City Transit Interim President Sarah Feinberg issued a statement, that said in part: "All passengers on the train were safely discharged at the station. The matter is under investigation."
