Two Metro-North passenger trains heading in opposite directions collided during rush hour this evening in southwestern Connecticut, damaging both trains and leaving dozens seriously injured. Sixty people were taken to multiple hospitals.
A train heading from New Haven to New York City derailed around 6:10 p.m., hitting the other train in Bridgeport, Connecticut, Metro-North spokeswoman Marjorie Anders said. That caused some cars on the second train, which was destined for New Haven, to likewise leave the tracks.
