Bronx train crash kills 4, injures

Authorities say there are "multiple injuries'' following a passenger train derailment this morning in the Bronx.

Governor Andrew Cuomo went to the scene and said in an impromptu news conference that four people are dead and 63 injured, 11 of them seriously.

New York City's Fire Commissioner says the train's conductor was slightly injured and is being  questioned. He also says if this had to happen it's lucky it was on a Sunday, because the train would have been packed with commuters on Monday.

National Transportation Safety officials are on their way for an accident investigation.

The Metro-North train was traveling from Poughkeepsie to New York's Grand Central Terminal when all seven cars derailed on a curved section of track near Spuyten Duyvil station.

Authorities are still trying to get a count of how many people were on board and checking area hospitals to see if any injured people show up on their own.
