NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Federal investigators said maintenance work was done in April on a section of railroad track where two Metro-North trains collided in Connecticut last week.
The National Transportation Safety Board released an update on its investigation into the derailment and crash on Friday.
About 700 people were on board the trains on May 17 when one heading east from Grand Central Terminal to New Haven derailed just outside Bridgeport.
It was hit then by a train heading west from New Haven to Grand Central on an adjacent track. Some cars on the second train also derailed as a result of the collision.
