Probe seeks cause of fatal NYC train crash

   NEW YORK (AP) — Metro-North officials say the locomotive of the commuter train that derailed in New York City, killing four people, has been righted.

   Spokesman Aaron Donovan says cranes re-railed the engine at 4:20 a.m. Monday.

   Two cranes are in place to lift the rest of the derailed cars pending approval from the National Transportation and Safety Board.

   Donovan says about 150 people were on board when the train derailed Sunday morning while rounding a riverside curve in the Bronx. More than 60 were injured.

   Donovan says all passengers have been accounted for.

   The accident occurred on the Hudson line, which carries 26,000 weekday riders. Federal authorities are embarking on an exhaustive investigation into what caused the derailment.

   ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) — Catholic Church officials say an employee of a diocese outside Washington, D.C., was among the 80 people who died in the Spain trash crash this week.

   The Diocese of Arlington says on its Facebook page that Ana Maria Cordoba, an administrative employee from northern Virginia, died in the wreck.

   Catholic News Service, a division of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, reports that Cordoba, a benefits specialist, was traveling with her husband, Philippe, and her daughter, Christina, a rising high school senior in Arlington.

   CNS reports that Philippe and Christina Cordoba were in stable condition at a hospital.

   Family members were on their way to see the Cordobas' son, who had completed a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela.

   Messages left for the diocese late Thursday were not immediately returned.

   MADRID (AP) - A Spanish court official says 77 people were killed when a passenger train derailed on a curvy stretch of track in northwestern Spain in what was one of the country's worst rail accidents in decades.

   Maria Pardo Rios, spokeswoman for the Galicia region's main court, said Thursday that 73 people were found dead at the scene of the accident and four died at hospitals.

   At least 140 people were injured in the derailment late Wednesday.

   ROSEDALE, Md. (AP) — Officials say the fire at a derailed chemical-carrying CSX train outside Baltimore is under control.

   Capt. Bruce Schultz of the Baltimore County Office of the Fire Marshal's investigative services announced early Wednesday that the blaze in Rosedale, Md., a suburb east of Baltimore, was called under control late Tuesday just before midnight.

   Schultz says CSX has moved unaffected cars away from the derailed cars and the fire department operations have been reduced to a fire watch at this time.

   Federal investigators will spend the coming days piecing together what caused the train to collide with a trash truck Tuesday afternoon.

   Authorities say some of the derailed cars — at least one carrying hazardous materials — caught fire and an explosion rattled homes at least a half-mile away.

Railroad officials say the man struck and killed by an Amtrak train in Pacific Wednesday night had been cutting across the tracks when the accident happened. Police say 20 year -old Zachary Brady was walking home from his job at a fast-food restaurant when Amtrak's Missouri River Runner train struck and killed him.

Police say this is the fourth serious accident along the Union Pacific line near the Fourth Street crossing in the last eight years -- two others were also fatal.

An Amtrak official told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that most accidents involving pedestrians could be avoided if people wouldn't trespass on railroad tracks. Trespasser fatalities have become the leading cause of railroad deaths.
