At least six people were killed Tuesday after a Metro-North commuter train struck a Jeep just north of the train station in Valhalla. The victims included the driver of the car, a woman who was outside of her vehicle when the crash occurred, and five people on board the train.
The fiery scene began to unfold about 6:30 p.m. when the Harlem Line train out of Grand Central Terminal struck the black Jeep Cherokee at the narrow, two-lane Commerce Street crossing, causing an explosion that ignited both the car and the train.
