Train Derails Killing Four In Bronx

NEW YORK (AP) — 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. Metropolitan Transportation Authority spokeswoman Marjorie Anders confirmed the deaths but couldn’t give an exact number. She said the big curve where the derailment occurred is in a slow speed area approaching the Spuyten Duyvil station. The black box should be able to tell how fast the train was traveling, Anders said. The derailment of the southbound Hudson Line train was reported at about 7:20 a.m., 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. Four or five cars on the seven-car train derailed about 100 yards north of the station, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority said in a news release. But none of the cars entered the Hudson or Harlem rivers, which are adjacent, the MTA said.
