Amtrak reports 238 passengers and five crew members were on board at the time of the incident.
Officials say they cannot confirm if everyone is accounted for, and fear more are dead in the wreckage. The investigation is ongoing, but officials say the preliminary focus of the probe is on the speed of the train. Nutter says the black box that has been recovered from the train is under analysis, and there is no information from it yet. The train conductor was injured and treated, and is giving a statement to investigators, according to Nutter. The site of the crash echoes an accident from 1943, when a Pennsylvania Railroad train crashed at Frankford Junction in Philadelphia. THE driver of a New York train that derailed as it hurtled around a corner in the Bronx, has told authorities that the locomotive's brakes "didn't work".At least four people were killed and 63 injured – 11 of them critically – in yesterday's early morning crash.

The Metro-North train's locomotive and carriages derailed as the train went into a bend in the railway line near Spuyten Duyvil station.
At least one eyewitness said the train - the 05:54 from Poughkeepsie to Grand Central Station - was travelling much faster than normal at the time. None of the carriages went into the adjacent Hudson or Harlem rivers - although pictures from the scene suggest this nearly happened.
The train appeared to be going "a lot faster'' than normal as it approached the curve coming into the station, passenger Frank Tatulli told WABC-TV.
Metropolitan Transportation Authority spokeswoman Marjorie Anders said the curve where the derailment occurred was in a slow speed area, and that the train's black box recorder should be able to tell how fast the train was travelling. Speaking to the media near the scene, New York state Governor Andrew Cuomo confirmed the casualty figures, adding that the authorities believed everyone at the site has been accounted for and that the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) was en route to the area to begin an investigation. A union official has spoken out -- and out of turn -- saying reassuring things about the engineer who seems to have nodded off, which caused the crash.


He's overweight and probably stops breathing during his sleep -- that would cause him to be sleep deprived and contribute to daytime sleepiness.
The other contributor was that his shift had changed from night to day two weeks prior, but that was not supposed to have any ill effect on his ability to perform his job safely.
The National Transportation Safety Board says brake failure and alcohol were not factors in the commuter train derailment that killed four people Sunday. At the same time, investigators said they have so far found no issues with the signal system or brakes on the train, which was traveling 82 mph before it careened off the tracks in a 30-mph zone, said Earl Weener, a member of the National Transportation Safety Board.
Weener said the crew, including the engineer, have passed alcohol tests and officials are still awaiting the results of drug testing. Rockefeller, a 15-year veteran of the MTA who has been an engineer for 10 years, was scheduled to work a typical nine-hour shift Sunday, the day of the crash, Weener said.
Bottalico said the union provided Rockefeller with an attorney during the interview, as well as a union official. A law enforcement source said that, at this point, investigators do not believe the engineer was using his cellphone, but they are checking records to confirm that.
Bronx prosecutors, along with the NYPD and MTA police, are also conducting a separate probe into the crash and will have to determine whether the engineer's conduct amounts to criminal negligence, the source said. Meanwhile, the governor's office announced Tuesday that service on the Hudson Line would be restored to 98 percent of its normal capacity for Wednesday's morning commute.
Commuters should expect delays of about 15 minutes as trains run on a single track in a 1-mile vicinity near the crash site as crews work to restore 800 feet of two of the three tracks.
As investigators zero in on Rockefeller's actions, they're looking closely at several angles, the law enforcement source said.
The law enforcement source said Rockefeller's statements would be compared with information from the train's data recorders. Without hurting service, workers will try to take a fresh look at improving safety, an MTA source said. The engineer seems to have admitted exactly that -- he was in a daze just before the crash.


They're checking his meds to see if he was taking anything to help him negotiate that shift change. Billy is very agitated by this to the point where he really couldn't go forward on Monday" with the NTSB interview, Bottalico said. The middle track was badly damaged and the outer track closest to the river was destroyed, officials said.
He survived the crash and is "distraught" over the accident and "the people who were injured," a source told the paper.Several eyewitnesses have reported that the train was travelling faster than the speed limit applied to the stretch of track where it derailed. I want to know that if a health issue did contribute, that it was a chance thing, and not something that could have been treated or found out earlier or should have been. Smoke and flames could be seen underneath the seventh car, but before workers could stop the train, the car jumped the tracks. The New York Times says between 100 and 150 people were on the 5.54am train from Poughkeepsie to Grand Central Station at the time of the accident. However, the union guy was probably just trying to spare the engineer from getting crucified in the press -- which could easily have happened. As it left the tracks in a shower of sparks, three people - all of whom were killed - were throw from their carriage "as the windows blew out", the Times says.All of the victims are New Yorkers. The union, which provided a lawyer to Rockefeller, has since been excluded from the ongoing investigation. The four victims who have been named were 35-year-old Ahn Kisook, Donna Smith, 54, James Ferrari, 59, and 58-year-old James Lovell.Survivors described the chaos as the train left the tracks.
