THE BRONX - Dozens of injured passengers were rushed to area hospitals following Sunday morning's Metro-North train derailment in the Bronx.

Four people were killed and more than 60 were injured after a train derailed near the Spuyten Duyvil station. Of those victims, 12 were brought to Saint Barnabas Hospital. Their injuries range from minor to severe.

A 14-year-old boy and a female NYPD officer were among the injured.

Dr. Ernest Patti says many injuries could have been prevented or lessened if the train had seat belts.

People with questions about passengers should call 1-800-METRO-INFO.
