200 evacuated in New Jersey train derailment

HARRISON, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say 200 passengers have been evacuated from a passenger train that derailed in New Jersey.

Port Authority of New York and New Jersey spokeswoman Erica Dumas says a PATH train struck a box truck that was crossing the tracks in Harrison, just outside of Newark, Sunday night.

Dumas says the front two wheels of the train went off the tracks.

She says four people are being treated at a hospital with minor injuries.

The train was heading from Harrison to Newark at the time of the incident, which remains under investigation.
