Debris Falls From Subway Tracks In Queens


NYC Transit President Andy Byford is ordering a review after another incident where debris fell from elevated subway tracks in Queens.

A big chunk of metal fell from tracks in Ozone Park and slammed into a livery car below.It’s the third such incident in recent days.

“It’s certainly of great concern to me,” Byford said.“I’m just grateful that no one was hurt or worse.”

Byford said the debris should have been caught by a basket under the tracks.He’s now ordered that all 325,000 baskets in the system be inspected by hand.
