A Metro-North train derailed Sunday as it rounded a curve in the Bronx borough of New York City, killing four people and injuring more than 60 others.

Some of the roughly 150 passengers on the early morning train from Poughkeepsie to Manhattan awoke to screams and the frightening sensation of their car rolling over.

It was the latest accident in a troubled year for the nation's second-biggest commuter railroad, which had never experienced a passenger death in an accident in its 31-year-history.

Here are some images from the derailment.
