NEW YORK (AP) - A minor derailment in Brooklyn snarled service for some New York City subway riders.

No injuries were reported after some wheels of a southbound “Q” train went off the track in Brighton Beach around 9 a.m. Friday.

The passengers were put on a rescue train.

Service on the “B” line also was briefly affected.

Transit in and around New York City has been plagued by a series of recent derailments, delays and breakdowns.

Last month, a Harlem subway derailment tossed around riders and forced hundreds to evacuate through darkened tunnels.
