Connecticut Train Derailment Leaves 70 People Injured

Two Metro-North passenger trains headed in opposite directions crashed during rush hour on Friday, leaving at least 70 people injured. Some of the injured remained hospitalized with serious injuries.

National Transportation Safety Board investigators are trying to determine if a broken rail caused Friday’s train derailment in Bridgeport, Connecticut.  A NTSB spokesman informed the media that the broken rail could have been caused by the accident itself, or it could have been broken before the collision. The NTSB has ruled out foul play.
