A Metro-North passenger train derailed on a curved section of track in the Bronx on Sunday morning, killing four people, and injuring up to 60 others authorities said.

The derailment of the southbound Hudson Line train was reported at about 7:20 a.m. near the Spuyten Duyvil station, authorities said. The train left Poughkeepsie at 5:54 a.m. and was due to arrive at 7:43 a.m. at Grand Central Terminal, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority said in a news release.

The train appeared to be going ‘‘a lot faster’’ than usual as it approached the curve coming into the station, passenger Frank Tatulli told WABC-TV.

The Fire Department of New York said 130 firefighters are on the scene, as is New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.  Four or five cars on the seven-car train derailed about 100 yards north of the station, the MTA said. But none of the cars entered the Hudson or Harlem rivers, which are adjacent, the MTA said.

The crash was reported by the engineer, and it wasn’t clear if any crew members are injured, the MTA said.  (Associated Press)
