And the train was really (going) back and forth and shaking ... and then I look out the window and I saw a spark or a fire type thing ... and then the train abruptly stopped and the car in front of mine was tilted, as if it wasn't fully on the track," she said.

"The LIRR crew reported to the MTA police that they hit a LIRR work train. It is unclear if that work train was moving but witnesses say it caught on fire, with smoke then filling the commuter train.
Passengers describe the first responders arriving quickly, evacuating the train in an orderly manner. Still, many of the passengers were left shaken.
"I'm looking or trying to find out what happened, and that's when I saw the man who probably working, that he was he was trapped under the rubble. He was trying to free himself. He couldn't move - he was pinned," said Joel Werner.
The good news is that passenger says that worker was eventually escorted off the train, and appeared to be okay."
