HARRISON, New Jersey — PATH trains are rolling Monday, hours after 200 passengers were evacuated from a train that derailed in New Jersey.

Port Authority of New York and New Jersey spokeswoman Erica Dumas says the PATH train struck a box truck that was crossing the tracks in Harrison, just outside of Newark, Sunday night.

Dumas says the front two wheels of the train went off the tracks.

She says four people were treated at a hospital with minor injuries.

The train was heading from Harrison to Newark at the time of the incident, which remains under investigation.
