The governor of Connecticut and the state's two senators are meeting with representatives from the National Transportation Safety Board this morning at the site of a Metro-North Railroad crash that injured 70 people.
Three people remain in critical condition following the crash between two commuter trains that serve the northern suburbs of New York City.
Yesterday's evening rush hour crash has disrupted train service in the region. Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy Malloy said there was extensive damage to the train cars and the track, and it could take until Monday for normal service to be restored. He said the accident will have a "big impact on the Northeast Corridor."
Amtrak, which uses the same rails, suspended service indefinitely between New York and Boston.
