Passengers from this train were evacuated onto the station platform through another train which was positioned for this purpose. The National Transportation Safety Board determines that the probable cause of this accident was the New York City Authority's failure to require the contractor making the repairs to shore up the skeletonized track in conformity with NYCTA procedures, the failure to erect slow speed signs in compliance with NYCTA policies, and the release by the contract inspector of the improperly skeletonized track to the desk trainmaster for revenue train operation.
