NEW YORK — Dozens of people were injured Saturday when a commuter train hit a work train east of New York City and derailed, officials said.

The eastbound Long Island Rail Road train derailed east of New Hyde Park, a spokesman for the railroad said.

A spokesman for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said 11 passengers were taken to hospitals, all with injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening. Official estimates on the number of injured people ranged from 29 to 40.

Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano said there were a "wide range of injuries from broken bones to lacerations to cuts." About 600 people were on the train out of Penn Station train when it crashed, the Democratic governor said in a statement.
