SUBWAY DERAILMENT

A worker looks at the wreckage of a subway car in the 135th Street Station in New York early Friday, July 4, 1997, following a Thursday night derailment. Fifteen people were injured, two seriously, when the express train in Harlem derailed, leaving the unoccupied last car crushed and severed in half, according to police.

This was at the 135th St spur if I remember correctly, it was a switch malfunction that caused the train to jump off and hit the wall, bending it in the process.
