Seven killed in commuter train collision in New York


“The gate came down and hit the back of the car in front of me, it was an SUV and it caught the roof, it bounced off the roof, and then slid a little bit behind the back window,” another driver at the scene described the accident. Passengers were evacuated to the back of the Harlem Line train. Buses were dispatched to move the hundreds of passengers, more than 750, to Pleasantville. Harlem Line Service was temporarily suspended between North White Plains and Pleasantville. Similar accidents occurred in the past. The National Transportation Safety Board issued a special investigation report in November on five Metro-North Railroad accidents between May 2013 and March 2014 that killed a total of six people and injured 126. They found “safety management problems” in all the accidents.
