Rail accident at N.Y.'s Penn Station snarls travel; minor injuriesA slow-moving Amtrak Acela train derailed and sideswiped a New Jersey commuter train on Friday, causing minor injuries and snarling morning rush-hour rail traffic at New York's Penn Station, a major transportation hub, officials said. The accident happened at about 9 a.m. EDT (1300 GMT), with passengers aboard the New Jersey Transit train describing hearing screeching metal as the Washington-bound Acela hit the commuter train while departing the station. "There was a loud sound of mangling metal and you felt the reverberations of another train raking the side of our train and I just heard screams from behind me as it traveled back," said Jordan Geary, who was traveling on the train with his wife from the New York suburb of Montclair, New Jersey.
