The derailment is currently under investigation, he added. Gov. Andrew Cuomo said approximately 600 passengers were on board at the time of the derailment, which spawned service disruptions on the Ronkonkoma, Oyster Bay and Port Jefferson branches. Service was also suspended between Jamaica and Hicksville—one of the railroad’s busiest branches. LIRR riders were advised to use Montauk, Babylon and Hempstead lines. The Long Island Rail said uninjured passengers were being taken to New Hyde Park Village Hall on Stewart Avenue.
