The Metro-North Railroad says emergency workers are arriving at the scene of Friday’s accident. The rail line referred to it in a news release as a “major derailment.”
Fairfield Police Officer Matt Panilaitis says 20 to 25 people were injured. He says there were no fatalities.
The railroad says the accident involved a New York-bound train leaving New Haven. It derailed and hit a westbound train near Fairfield, Conn. Some cars on the second train also derailed.
