NEW YORK (AP) - Service on Amtrak’s Empire line has resumed after being temporarily suspended when a boat struck a rail bridge in New York City.

Amtrak spokeswoman Kimberly Woods says the boat hit the Spuyten Duyvil Bridge at 4:20 p.m. Sunday.

She said there were no injuries, but service had been suspended while Amtrak crews inspected the bridge, which spans the Spuyten Duyvil Creek between Manhattan and the Bronx.

Woods says passengers should expect delays as service resumes and trains move through the area.
