A Metro-North Railroad train derailed Sunday morning in the Bronx along the Hudson River, and a spokesman for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority said there could be fatalities.

Five of the seven cars on the southbound train from Poughkeepsie, N.Y., left the tracks about 7:20 a.m. near the Spuyten Duyvil station under the Henry Hudson Bridge on Metro-North’s Hudson Line, the spokesman, Aaron Donovan, said.

The New York Fire Department reported multiple injuries. Mr. Donovan said the extent of the injuries was not immediately known, but he said there were “possible fatalities.”

The police and fire departments were sending rescue teams to the scene. Firefighters could be seen lowering stretchers into the train cars, which were lying nearly on their sides; one car was just above the water.

The train left Poughkeepsie about 5:54 a.m., Mr. Donovan said, adding that it was unlikely to have been carrying many passengers.

“We are just not sure” what caused the derailment, he said. “That will be the subject of a detailed investigation.”

A freight train derailed near the same station in July.

All service between the Croton-Harmon station and Grand Central Terminal was suspended, Mr. Donovan said.

48 others injured. That train came SUPER CLOSE to going fully into the river, the pics I'm seeing show the train right on waters edge, there searching the water now for people that may have been thrown, this is very bad.

I'm going to guess that the train split the switch or a rail rolled under the train.

They just quoted people who live nearby, they said they always hear tbe trains screach a bit as they come around that bend which is nothing out of the ordinary they hear it all the time, but theyre saying this time they heard a very prolonged screaching much longer than normal, sounds like speeding to me.

This the scene from the PIP across the river.

There were 5-6 boats from NYPD and FDNY working the area to make sure no one was in the water.

u know y they don't know how many people r on board because they rarely stamp your ticket they need a system where u swipe your card before entering the train its like they never got out of the 1800s ToungueToungueToungueToungueToungueToungueToungueToungueToungue
