      Derailed New York Train Was Speeding

      A New York train that derailed on Sunday, killing four people, was traveling nearly three times faster than the speed limit for the section of track where it crashed, officials said on Monday.

      According to investigators, the seven-car Metro-North train's brakes were working properly but were applied just seconds before it derailed. Black-box recorders recovered from the train showed it had been traveling at 82 miles per hour before entering the 30-mile-per-hour curve where it crashed.
