Clues sought in deadly New York train derailment
Tina SusmanNEW YORK — Passengers were dozing early Sunday as Metro-North's No. 8808 train headed into a sharp curve on tracks overlooking the roiling waters where the Harlem and Hudson rivers meet.
Just after 7:20 a.m., the screeching sound of metal on metal pierced the quiet cars. Residents in nearby homes heard loud bangs and saw train cars wobbling toward the water. Snoozing passengers were jolted awake when rocks, dirt and other debris flew into their faces through shattered windows as the cars tipped over and slid along the ground.
Three passengers were hurled from the train to their deaths. A fourth died inside the wreckage, which was such a tightly tangled mess that rescue workers had to cut people free from the metal, glass and dislodged seats. More than 60 people were injured in the latest accident involving New York's Metro-North Railroad.
