Two data recorders retrieved from the commuter train that derailed while rounding a riverside curve, killing four people and injuring dozens, may provide information on the speed of the train, how the brakes were applied and the throttle setting, a member of the National Transportation Safety Board said Monday.
A New York City commuter train rounding a riverside curve derailed Sunday, killing four people and injuring more than 60 in a crash that threw some riders from toppling cars and swiftly raised questions about whether excessive speed, mechanical problems or human error could have played a role.
Five cars tore off the tracks Sunday near the Hudson River while headed toward Manhattan's Grand Central Terminal. Two people were thrown from the rail cars. Gov. Andrew Cuomo is on the scene.
A Metro-North train derailed on a curved section of track in the Bronx on Sunday morning, coming to rest just inches from the water and causing multiple fatalities and dozens of injuries, authorities said.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo says a Metro-North passenger train derailment in New York City has left four people dead and 63 injured. Cuomo spoke Sunday morning at the scene of the crash in the Bronx. He says authorities believe everyone at the site has been accounted for and that the National Transportation Safety Board is en route. Cuomo says the train operator is among the injured. The crash was reported at 7:20 a.m. near the Spuyten Duyvil station. The southbound Hudson Line train from Poughkeepsie was headed to Grand Central Terminal. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says four or five cars on the seven-car train derailed about 100 yards north of the station on a curved section of the track. None of the cars entered the Hudson or Harlem rivers, which are adjacent to the tracks.
