Authorities say a train derailed at the Neptune Avenue station in Coney Island.
The northbound F train derailed between West Eighth Street and the Neptune Avenue subway station around 12:25 p.m., police say.
Metropolitan Transportation Authority officials acknowledged a problem with the track that might have led to the incident and said that the wheel of the train came off the track, leading to the derailment.
