Train turmoil: Travelers dealing with residual effects of Conn. crash
About 30,000 travelers moving through Connecticut dealt with grueling commutes Monday as trains between Boston and New York remained canceled due to a train crash Friday that injured more than 70 passengers and crew members.
A Metro-North train derailed and then was hit by another train between Fairfield and Bridgeport, Conn.
Many buses bound for New York from Boston’s South Station were already sold out early Monday morning.
While the snafu had little impact on Boston-area traffic, Total Traffic Network reporter Nichole Davis warned of hold-ups heading south.
“Anyone heading toward Connecticut is going to find snarled traffic there,” she said.
