US Commuter Trains Collide Injuring 60

Up to 60 people have been hospitalised after a collision between two US commuter trains serving New York City, police say.

Five of the injured are critical after a "major derailment" near Fairfield, Connecticut, just outside Bridgeport.

Alex Cohen, a passenger on the train headed to New York, said it pulled to a sudden halt and then suddenly jerked forward.
