New Jersey Transit said one of its trains has derailed at New York’s Penn Station.

Initial reports described the Monday morning derailment as minor. The Fire Department of New York initially said there were no injuries but CBS2 in New York reports that at least five people were injured.

Service remains suspended for NJ Transit service on the Northeast Corridor and New Jersey Coast Line. The railroad said it is cross-honoring tickets throughout its system with buses and PATH trains. Amtrak also reported delays.

The derailment comes a week and a half after an Amtrak train partially derailed as it pulled out of Penn Station. It scraped the side of an arriving NJ Transit train on March 24. No serious injuries were reported.
