Remarks & Notes 
Four people were killed and 63 were injured after a Metro North Hudson Line train derailed in the Bronx, New York City at 7:20am December 1, 2013. Operating in a locomotive-pushing manner, it was heading from Poughkeepsie to Grand Central Terminal when the seven cars and the locomotive derailed rounding a curve near the Spuyten Duyvil station. The trains regular 70 MPH speed is normally reduced to 30 MPH for the curve. The train was doing 82 MPH when it entered the curve. At least two of the four people that were killed were thrown from the train. There were approximately 150 passengers and it is assumed that they have all been accounted for. The train operator, engineer William Rockefeller was injured in the accident and has been able to speak with officials from the NTSB. This view shows the leading control car, Conn Dot No. 6222, one of only 2 CDOT center-door cab cars, only feet from the water next to the Metro-North's Bronx NY, Spuyten Dyuvil station while being examined by NTSB personnel.
