Commuter trains collide injuring up to 60 people

At least 60 people have been injured in a evening rush hour train collision in Connecticut. A train packed with commuters was travelling eastbound from New York City when it derailed near Fairfield and then hit another train. Three of the injured are in critical condition. Dannel Malloy is Connecticut Governor. SOUNDBITE: (English) CONNECTICUT GOVERNOR DANNEL MALLOY SAYING: "It's clear that these cars came into contact, ripped off at least a portion of the siding of one of the cars. There is extensive damage in the front and the wheels and that system are sticking into the other train. I think you have seen some pictures, I know that some of the news outlets but you probably can't fully gauge it until you're right there. It's pretty big damage." The collision has shut the service between New York and Boston while investigators try to determine what caused the incident. Authorities say disruption to the line could last for a number of days.
