US Train Crash Injures 60, Suspends Service

A head-on collision of two commuter trains between the eastern U.S. cities of New York and Boston has injured at least 60 people.

Officials say the crash took place around 6 p.m. local time Friday near Bridgeport, Connecticut, about 100 kilometers northeast of New York. Connecticut state governor Dannel Malloy told reporters that five people were critically injured in the crash, including one person with very serious injuries.

The cause of the crash is under investigation. Malloy said there is "no reason to believe the cause of the crash is anything but accidental."

National train service Amtrak, which uses the same tracks as the local trains, has suspended indefinitely its service between New York and Boston.
