L train derails from track while departing from station in Brooklyn

A Manhattan-bound L train derailed as it departed the Canarsie-Rockaway Parkway station in Brooklyn on Sunday night.

The MTA says the train was crossing from one track to another just before 9 p.m. when a single axle with two wheels left the track, causing the fourth and fifth cars to separate slightly.

Officials say everyone was evacuated and there were no reported injuries.

Full service on the L line is expected to be restored on Monday morning.
