NEW YORK — Subway service on the A and C subway lines was temporarily suspended in both directions on Monday evening after a train struck a shopping cart on the tracks at Fulton Street, officials said.
Smoke was reported at the station. The FDNY responded just after 6 p.m., an agency spokesperson said. Service in both directions resumed around 7:10 p.m.
Riders were advised to expect delays.
While service was suspended, A and C trains briefly stopped along the F line between Jay St-MetroTech and West 4th St-Wash Sq in both directions. The last stop on some southbound A/C trains was the World Trade Center on the E line. Some southbound E trains stopped along the M line from 5 Av/53rd St to West 4th St-Wash Sq to ease congestion along 8th Av. Some southbound A trains ran on the local track between 59th St-Columbus Circle and West 4th St.
