Speed is being blamed for a Metro-North train derailment in Rye.
The train was traveling from Connecticut to Grand Central Terminal when it went off the tracks in 2017.
Investigators say the train was going 56 mph in a 10 mph speed restricted area.
The National Transportation Safety Board says the train's engineer was speeding and failed to communicate the temporary speed restriction to the conductor.
Five of the 12 cars derailed in Rye, leaving 12 passengers injured.
