58-year old Jim Lovell is one of the four people who lost their lives in Sunday morning's train derailment. He did freelance audio for television, and was heading into Manhattan for a job. Anderson spoke with his widow, Nancy Montgomery, and his sons Finn, Jack and Hudson.
Amanda Swanson waits tables in Manhattan. She was on her way to work when theMetro-North train she was riding in jumped the tracks. Swanson’s car landed on its side. She told Anderson she did not grasp the gravity of the situation until she got out of the train.
We are now learning the Metro-North train that flew off a curve Sunday morning, just north of Manhattan, was traveling 82 mph in a 30 mph zone. That's faster than the 70 mph speed limit for straight and level track. This was the first wreck in the railroad's history. Jason Carroll has the latest on the investigation.
