Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – A commuter train that crashed in the Bronx early Sunday morning, killing four people, was going 82 miles per hour as it entered a 30 mile-per-hour curve, investigators said on Monday.

The Metro-North train derailed in the Bronx borough of New York City as it headed from Poughkeepsie to Grand Central Station in New York City.

Eleven people were in critical condition at area hospitals, according to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. Three of the dead were ejected from the train.

Transit officials have not indicated whether the operator – who survived – will face criminal charges.
