Four people are reported dead, and 63 injured in a New York train derailment. Of the 63 injured, 11 are listed as critical. The engineer is among the injured. Four or five cars on the seven-car train derailed in the Bronx about 100 yards north of the Spuyten Duyvil station, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority said in a news release. None of the cars entered the Hudson or Harlem rivers, which are adjacent, the MTA said. The Fire Department of New York said 130 firefighters had responded to the derailment. Sunday’s accident is the second passenger train derailment in six months for Metro-North.
The derailment of the southbound Hudson Line train was reported at about 7:20 a.m. near the Spuyten Duyvil station, authorities said. The train left Poughkeepsie at 5:54 a.m. and was due to arrive at 7:43 a.m. at Grand Central Terminal.(AP)
