One person was injured after a New York City subway train struck an object on the tracks near the Yankee Stadium late Sunday.

Authorities with knowledge of the investigation say a northbound D train was entering the 161th Street and River Avenue station around 9:30 p.m. when it crashed into an unidentified object. Dozens had to be helped off the train.

The nature of the injury to the person who was hurt wasn't clear.

The MTA says the trains were rerouted as crews removed debris from the tracks. Train service eventually resumed about an hour later.

An investigation into how the object ended up on the train track is ongoing, police said. No other information was immediately available.
