Metro-North railway derailment causes about $9M in damage

Posted on Tuesday, January 21st, 2014 at 1:03 pm    

On Tuesday, January 14 officials confirmed that the December 1 derailment of the Metro-North commuter train amounted to nearly $9 million in damages. The train derailed in the Bronx, killed four people, and caused serious injury to 60 people.

In a two-page report released by the National Transportation Safety Board, Metro-North ascertained that the amount covers repairs on the damaged locomotive, coaches, and track.

Marjorie Anders, spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, clarified that the specified amount did not include any costs from personal injury lawsuits.

The report did not indicate whether the cause of the accident was human error or whether mechanical defects caused the derailment.

The attorneys of Hach & Rose, LLP, extend our sincere condolences to those affected by the train derailment.
