You may have noticed the Q and B trains were acting wonky this morning. That's because early this morning, at about 5am, an SUV made a crash landing on top of a train on the Q line near the Church Avenue station in Prospect Park South, Brooklyn. In case you were wondering, that looks like this:
According to DNAinfo, the car's driver crashed through a fence, which ended up acting as a sort of ramp for the SUV to end up on top of a moving Q train near Albemarle Road at East 16th Street. The driver fled the scene, abandoning the vehicle, and still hasn't been found. Fortunately, there were no injuries; a rescue train came to pick up the roughly 50 passengers that were on board and brought them to the Church Avenue subway stop.
The SUV was removed from the subway car, which barely sustained any damage, around 9:30am, but train crew are still working to get the fence out of the way. Southbound Q trains are running express from Prospect Park to Kings Highway, and southbound B trains are running with delays; check with the MTA before setting out.
