Crashed NY Metro-North train was 'over speed limit'

(bbc)

Investigators combed the site of the Metro-North train accident in New York's Bronx borough for clues.


A train that crashed on Sunday in New York City was going 82mph (132 km/h) when it ran off the rails, investigators have said.
Four people were killed and more than 60 injured in New York's Bronx borough.
The Metro-North train crashed about 07:30 local time (11:30 GMT) on a curve with a 30mph speed limit.
National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) are investigating whether a mechanical fault or human error led to the train's high speed.
NTSB board member Earl Weener said at a news conference on Monday that investigators continue to study data from two event recorders recovered at the crash site, but could not yet determine what caused the accident.
New York Senator Charles Schumer called the locomotive's speed "frightening".
"The fact that it was going 82mph even before the curve raises so many questions, and it's scary," Mr Schumer said, adding that the rail line's tracks and signals appeared to have been in working order at the time of the accident.
