Shortly after 7 am Eastern time on Sunday, Metropolitan Transportation Authority police confirmed that a Metro-North train derailed near the Hudson river in the Bronx. The accident occurred near Palisade Avenue near the Spuyten Duyvil railroad station. Photos taken of the accident scene show eight cars derailed.  Edwin Valero was in an apartment building above the accident scene when the train derailed, the WSJ reports. He says none of the cars went into a nearby body of water, but at least one ended up a few feet from the edge. Rebecca Schwartz was at a nearby park when the accident occurred. She says she didn't see or hear the derailment but looked across the water when she heard emergency vehicle sirens. She says numerous emergency vehicles have responded to the scene.

The most recent injury report from NBC has 4 dead and 48 injured in the derailment.

Was he doing 60 mph or are you making that up?   The infrastructure (tracks) is probably junk.  This old junk should probabl not exceed 30 mph on any turn.  What a joke.  NYC is a corrupt sewer.

If NYC is anything like Boston, by the end of the day there will be at least 10,000 FSA regulars claiming they were injured in the wreck.

If there was any fucking common sense left, some of the that 85B per month would be headed to our infrastructure, which is old and dying rather quickly. Train lines and companies fit in their somewhere, since they are subsidized, etc. I don't know. Maybe some of that money is making it to the infrastructure. I'm going to guess not enough, though.

And the FSA would be put to work as laborers on the infrastructure.  If I pay 20% in taxes, basically 1 day's wages, the FSA can put in 1 day of work to earn their benefits.

If you work, you aren't just paying 20%.  You probably pay closer to 50% at least, when figuring in your fed, state, and local income taxes, sales taxes, property taxes, all of the hidden taxes (in your phone/internet/cable bill) fees etc.

Don't delude yourself into thinking you are only paying 20% unless you are in the FSA.

Often times this is a case of human error like that Spain train earlier this year.   Operator drove the train at 200 around a curve rated for 80.    

You know fucking technology exists to stop this kind of shit.   If Google can make a driverless car then software can be installed t govern the speed of trains in certain areas.    People today are so fucking hopped up on drugs I am surprised this doesn't happen every damned hour.

All points of infrastructure and pay rates aside, this is still a tragedy.

 

That said, the pictures seem to indicate a bunch-up before the station. My shitty guess is that either the train was going too fast and/or that the brakes on the following cars did not engage when the first did. Maybe neither and the tracks buckled because all the maintenance guys are all tea-party turkey-fryers, but it's probably just a tragedy.

Hadn't the MTA been working on this area? Remember hearing grumbles over the summer about having to take a bus detour around it ...

We pay for the natives to not be restless by feeding them ignorance, creating morons and diabetics, drug abusers (ritalin and other psychotropics forced upon youth), hardened criminals, all in the name of corporate P and L and a perverted, and dare I say evil, sense of charity. But we've got decaying infrastructure and trains derailing in Bloomberg's Utopia.

The train moves about 10 - 20 mph in that area, so double WTF.

Not downplaying the tragedy of four dead and 45 injuries, but if this had happened in a place like Kansas City, MO it would be a brief blip on the nightly news and a few tweets sent out. I know it's hard to believe, but there is life outside NYC.

I grew up in KC. I lived in NYC for seven years and took the MNR 4-5 days a week. You are correct! Nobody gives a shit if some Kansans die in a train wreck. New Yorkers? Full coverage! I said last year When I got stuck on a train and could not pass Norwalk Cuz a bridge got stuck like the one you see on the news. We were already in the process of getting ready to move...but I said then that its just a matter of time! So glad I'm gone. There are just too many folks condensed into a small area. I saw it in the huge snowstorm last year…Sandy…Irene. Ive seen fights over gas…a fight at a four way stop....empty food SHELVES…FUCK YOU I AM OUT! You can have it.
