A New York City subway train derailed in a tunnel in the borough Queens today.

Passengers were evacuated by emergency crews through a sidewalk exit.

The express F train was bound for Manhattan and Brooklyn when it derailed at 10:40 a.m. about 1,200 feet (365 meters) south of the 65th Street station, according to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

Dozens of firefighters and paramedics with stretchers converged on Broadway and 60th Street, where passengers calmly left the tunnel through the sidewalk opening. A few were treated on stretchers.

It wasn't immediately clear how many passengers were on board.

Authorities said there were no immediate reports of injuries.
