NEW YORK - A subway train hit two people in Manhattan on Tuesday before 10:30 a.m. Two people died but what exactly happened isn't clear.
Investigators do not believe the victims jumped or were pushed because neither the train operator nor the conductor saw anyone, police sources said.
Mayor Eric Adams, who came to the scene, confirmed it did not appear to be a shoving incident.
Once the bodies were removed, detectives combed the heavily littered tracks for whatever evidence they could find. They found a large number of hypodermic needles typically used with IV drug injection but are not sure yet if that has anything to do with this case, sources said.
Cops are asking for subway riders help to figure out what really happened.
L train service was suspended in both directions between Bedford Avenue in Brooklyn and 8th Avenue in Manhattan for several hours and then limited service was restored.
