We are part of The Trust Project


One man from Montrose and another from Cold Spring were among the four people confirmed dead following the derailment of a Metro-North train in the Bronx Sunday morning.

James Ferrari, 59, of Montrose, and Jim Lovell, 58, of Cold Spring, were killed when a train heading from Poughkeepsie to Grand Central Station derailed rounding a sharp curve before the Spuyten Duyvil station.

Sixty-three other passengers were injured, 11 of whom were in critical condition and six in serious condition.

Train service south of the Tarrytown station was suspended following the accident and throughout Sunday. Service on the Hudson line will also be suspended for the Monday morning commute.

Hudson line commuters will be able to park for free at Kensico Dam in Valhalla beginning at 5 a.m. Monday. It is a short walk to the Valhalla train station.
