A Metro-North passenger train derailed on a curved section of track in the Bronx borough of New York City early Sunday morning, killing four people and injuring 63 others, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo confirmed at a news conference.
The derailment of the southbound Hudson Line train, which came to rest just inches from the water, was reported at about 7:20 a.m. near the Spuyten Duyvil station, authorities said. The train was coming from Poughkeepsie and headed to Manhattan’s Grand Central Terminal.
Authorities said everyone on the site has been accounted for and that officials from the National Transportation Safety Board are on the scene to investigate.
