NEW YORK (AP) - Transit officials say the No. 5 subway line has resumed service in the Bronx.

Service between Eastchester-Dyre Avenue and East 180th Street was suspended Tuesday night after part of a subway platform that was under construction collapsed.

Service resumed early Wednesday morning.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says a portion of the island platform slab on the elevated Eastchester-Dyre Avenue subway station gave way. No injuries were reported.

The cause of the incident is under investigation.
