Hundreds evacuated from subway after A train derails in Harlem

Service on A, B, C and D trains have been halted in both directions after an A train derailed in Harlem this morning.

According to the Daily News, three people were injured and hundred of commuters were evacuated on Tuesday after the incident. Photos show many subway cars without power and smoke filling the tunnel.

The accident, which happened around 9:45am this morning, took place just outside of the 125th St station close to St. Nicholas Avenue. The air conditioning and lights immediately went out on the train and it came to a full stop.

The MTA has reported that none of the injuries were major and that it has evacuated all of the riders who had been trapped underground.

The E, F and M lines have also been affected by the service changes resulting from the derailment. You can check the MTA's official site for more updates on service.
