The Long Island Rail Road is back on track after two different accidents involving cars. 



Officials say a train hit a vehicle on Ponquogue Avenue in Hampton Bays last night just before 9 p.m. 



The driver was trying to make U-turn when the car was hit by an equipment train, officials say. No injuries were reported. 



About 45 minutes later, officials say a train struck a car on Little East Neck Road near Pinelawn station in Wyandanch. The car was empty at the time.
