A spokesperson for the MTA says the train hit a bumping block just before 7:30 a.m., causing one car to partially derail. The train came to a stop after crashing through a fence.
The MTA spokesperson says no passengers were on board.
Metro-North Railroad's president says the train's conductor and locomotive engineer were taken to the hospital and are expected to be OK.
