NEW HYDE PARK, N.Y. — At least 11 people were injured after a Long Island Rail Road train derailed near New Hyde Park Saturday night.

The derailment happened at 9:10 p.m.,  about half a mile east of the New Hyde Park train station.

Officials say the first three cars of a 12-car train derailed.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a statement that approximately 600 passengers were aboard the train when it derailed.

According to Cuomo, at least 11 people sustained injuries. None of the injuries are considered to be serious.

Service is suspended on the Ronkonkoma, Oyster Bay and Port Jefferson lines in both directions.

LIRR riders are urged to use the Montauk, Babylon and Hempstead lines as an alternative.

"Staff from the MTA and the LIRR are on the scene and will work around the clock to determine the cause of this derailment and restore service as quickly as possible," said Cuomo.

The derailment comes roughly two weeks after a NJ Transit train crashed in Hoboken killing a woman and injuring 108 people.
