NEW YORK (AP) 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.
