NEW YORK, NY- Crime in New York City has been on the rise. Its subway system has taken a full blunt of that spike. From Sunday until today, there has been a derailment on the (A) line that damaged the skin frame of the first car, the third rail, and loss of power, which left straphangers stranded near 34th St- Penn Station. A Brooklyn woman was assaulted on the subway by a male and a female just for telling them to wear their masks. A female straphanger gets attacked of thwarting attempted theft. An innocent man, waiting for the train, got pushed on to the track. This city is in total awry, thanks to Cuomo (dumb), DeBlasio (dumber), and their retarded a** bail reform/no bail policy.
The (A) Train Derailment
At 8:15 am, an Inwood-207th bound R46 (A) express train pulled up at the 14th St-8th Av subway platform and got derailed. The cause of this derailment was some metal tie plates, known as D plates, which keep the tracks together, was intentionally thrown onto the tracks. Three passengers suffered minor injuries. One refused medical attention, another was treated at the scene and the third was taken to Bellevue Hospital for further treatment. Train crew were not to blame for this incident. This is something a career criminal lunatic would do.
Moments later, a suspect was caught and apprehended. 30 year old Detemtrius Howard of the Bronx caused this derailment. He has an extensive criminal history and threw more clamps just as the (A) train roared into the station. Commuters saw the suspect laughing at the disaster he unleashed, sources said. Good Samaritans held him at the station until cops took him into custody. Police brought Harvard to NYPD Transit District headquarters at the Canal St. station on the A, C and E lines for questioning. He was later charged with reckless endangerment, criminal mischief, assault and criminal trespassing. The brazen act caused one of New York City’s most catastrophic train derailments in years. The train’s first two wheel sets were thrown from the tracks and the front car slammed into four structural pillars, causing its metal siding to peel back like a can of anchovies and its front three door panels to be damaged.
Service was either rerouted, suspended, and/or split into two. The straphangers that were on the (A) that was heading up to 34th St-Penn Station, evacuated from the train safely. Crews had to use a diesel locomotive to tow the derailed subway train to a maintenance yard for repairs and further inspection. Workers also have to replace the large stretch of damaged and destroyed third rail and track components as well as make repairs to structural pillars. The person who caught the scoundrel, Rikien Wilder, caught Howard at the scene of the crime and held him along with some good samaritans for 15 minutes until police arrived. For his heroic deeds and troubles, he was rewarded free unlimited rides for a year and a shirt that says, "Hero Of The Subways" and "New York Tough".
