Metro-North passenger train derails in NYC

NEW YORK (AP) — Police and witnesses say a Metro-North passenger train has derailed in New York City.

Metropolitan Transportation Authority police say the train derailed Sunday morning near the Spuyten Duyvil station. Photos taken of the accident scene show eight cars derailed.

It is not yet clear if anyone was injured.

Edwin Valero was in an apartment building above the accident scene when the train derailed. He says none of the cars went into a nearby body of water, but at least one ended up a few feet from the edge.

Rebecca Schwartz was at a nearby park when the accident occurred. She says she didn't see or hear the derailment but looked across the water when she heard emergency vehicle sirens. She says numerous emergency vehicles have responded to the scene.
