At about 10:25 p.m. a southbound R train hit the bike.  The crash caused significant sparking, damage to the train, and the train's emergency brake to engage.  No one was hurt in the incident.

The 5 people then took off from the station on foot after the incident.

The NYPD was hoping that someone recognizes the suspects so that officers can find them.
