Eight people remain hospitalized—three in critical condition—after two commuter trains carrying more than 700 people collided Friday night, according to Connecticut Governor Malloy. Speaking to press Saturday, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority reported “extensive infrastructure damage," that will keep normal service from returning until a "full investigation" is complete. The train derailed, injuring up to 60 people, after colliding with another train heading to Grand Central. "It was just a crazy scene...People were thrown," one passenger told the New Haven Register.
