The operator and conductor on a New York subway train that derailed Sunday afternoon will undergo blood-alcohol testing.

Officials say that's standard procedure after an accident.

The more than 400 riders were put onto another train after two cars of their subway jumped the tracks in a tunnel near Central Park. The train was heading from Queens to Brooklyn.

One person reported a minor injury but didn't need medical treatment.
