13 passengers were injured, 7 of whom were sent to hospitals, when a rush-hour Path train crashed upon arrival at the 33rd street Path station in Midtown this morning.
The 7:59 out of Hoboken pulled into the station and crashed into a “bumping block” at a slow speed at 8:14. Police say that the injuries are all very minor, mostly reported as neck and back pain. 600 passengers were on the train at the time of the crash, and investigators are currently trying to determine the cause of the incident.
The stretch of Sixth Avenue at 33rd street where the station was located was closed off during the investigation, but service was not disrupted. The Path train serves Jersey City, Hoboken, Harrison, and Newark out of points in Manhattan below 34th street.
