FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) — A New York-area commuter railroad says two trains have collided in Connecticut. Police say that 20 or more people were injured, but that there were no fatalities.
The Metro-North Railroad says emergency workers are arriving at the scene of Friday's accident near Fairfield. The rail line referred to it in a news release as a "major derailment."
Fairfield Police Officer Matt Panilaitis says 20 to 25 people were injured. He says there were no fatalities.
The railroad says a train that departed Grand Central Station en route to New Haven derailed. A westbound train on an adjacent track then struck the derailed train.
Some cars on the second train also derailed as a result of the collision.
Amtrak suspended service indefinitely between New York and Boston.
