New York City Train derails! 4 dead, 60+ hurt.



Metro-North train was traveling at more than 80 mph at time of fatal crash, NTSB says

The commuter train that derailed in New York City was traveling 82 mph as it went into a 30 mph curve according to preliminary information, the National Transportation Safety Board said Monday.

However, NTSB board member Earl Weener said it was too early to tell if human error or faulty equipment triggered the crash that killed four and injured dozens more early Sunday morning.

“That’s the question we need to answer,” Weener told an afternoon news conference.
