    Hopefully any injuries are minimal. At least it didn't happen during a full commuter run.

    And this is the second time this week that all service has been suspended. The LIRR needs to get its act together.

    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.

    Passengers describe the first responders arriving quickly, evacuating the train in an orderly manner. Still, many of the passengers were left shaken.

    [FONT=&amp]A Long Island Rail Road train derailment that injured dozens on Saturday was likely caused by a work train that was violating the space of the passenger train, Gov. Cuomo said Sunday morning.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&amp]“It appears that the work train was violating the space from the revenue train, that the work train was overlapping into the clearance area of that train and that’s what caused the side swap and that’s what caused the derailment,” said Cuomo, who visited the Nassau County site of the accident.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&amp]Cuomo said there was a splatter of yellow paint visible where the first collision occurred.
