FAIRFILED, COnn. (NECN/Alysha Palumbo) - "Obviously this is a commuter's worst nightmare," said Fairfield, Conn. Police Chief Gary MacNamara. At least five people were critically injured - one of those very critically - and at least 60 people were transported to the hospital after a New York City-bound Metro-North Railroad commuter train derailed on the Bridgeport-Fairfield border in southern Connecticut during rush hour Friday, slamming head-on into a westbound train.
