New York train was not speeding before crash with car

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 02/06/2015 - 08:35
By Sebastien Malo TARRYTOWN, N.Y. (Reuters) - The New York commuter train that plowed into a car stopped on a crossing this week was traveling just below the speed limit and no problem was found with the signals or traffic barriers at the site of the deadly crash, a federal investigator said on Thursday. The fiery crash that followed killed the SUV driver and five train passengers in the deadliest rail accident in the New York area in more than three decades. The driver of the vehicle behind the Mercedes told NTSB investigators on Thursday that traffic was "edging along" at the railway crossing in Valhalla, an affluent town north of New York City, Robert Sumwalt, an NTSB member, said at a news conference. The Mercedes came to a stop on the crossing, Sumwalt said.

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 02/06/2015 - 08:27
By Natasja Sheriff NEW YORK (Reuters) - A former member of a New Jersey church group testified on Thursday that a deli worker accused of kidnapping and murdering a New York City boy in 1979 confessed the crimes to him during a religious retreat that year. Pedro Hernandez is accused of the kidnapping and murder of 6-year-old Etan Patz, who vanished on May 25, 1979 while walking to a school bus stop in Manhattan's Soho neighborhood. The case ignited a national movement to find missing children, and Patz was one of the first missing children whose picture appeared on a milk carton. Hernandez, 54, was arrested in 2012 after police got a tip that he had confessed at a church group.
