At least 103 people were injured — three seriously — when a commuter train slammed into a safeguard at a Brooklyn station Wednesday morning, forcing part of its first car off the tracks, officials said.

Passengers told TV news crews on the scene that there was a loud bang and a jolt that sent some people flying. The first car of the train left the track, but no others were affected, FOX5 reported.

Some people were carried away on stretchers. Others were sitting outside the train holding ice packs to their heads.

Reports from the scene said some people were bleeding from cuts.

NY Daily News reports that shaken commuters posted photos of emergency workers responding to the scene online.

“Lots of police and fire at Atlantic,” one person wrote on Twitter. “Looks like a LIRR train didn’t stop at the end of the platform.”

Another person posted, “Atlantic Avenue Terminal is insane right now because of the passenger train derailment.”

 

The MTA said the derailment was causing traffic and transit delays and road closures near Atlantic and Flatbush Aves.

“Anticipate possible delays into and out of Atlantic Terminal this morning due to an incident at the terminal,” the MTA posted on Twitter.

Cops shut down the entire block around Barclays Center.

“An incident,” wrote another person on Twitter. “What you really mean is your train crashed into the wall!”

The National Transportation Safety Board was sending a “go-team” to New York to investigate alongside the Federal Railroad Administration.

Hopefully everybody will be okay.

God Bless America.
