BRIDGEPORT - Sunday’s Metro-North derailment in the Bronx brought back memories of the May derailment in southwestern Connecticut that sent more than 70 people to the hospital.

During that incident, an eastbound Metro-North train derailed near Bridgeport and was then struck by a westbound train.

Cynthia Clarke injured her neck and shoulder during the Bridgeport derailment. She and her attorney will be asking the railroad to pay her medical bills. She says she will no longer take Metro-North trains after the latest incident that killed four people and injured dozens.

Metro-North says that it has historically had an excellent safety record, but that this has been a tough year. The railroad say it is fully committed to carrying out whatever recommendations are made following investigations into this year's derailments.
