NEW YORK (AP) — Metro-North officials say the locomotive of the commuter train that derailed in New York City, killing four people, has been righted.

Spokesman Aaron Donovan says cranes re-railed the engine at 4:20 a.m. Monday.

Two cranes are in place to lift the rest of the derailed cars pending approval from the National Transportation and Safety Board.

Donovan says about 150 people were on board when the train derailed Sunday morning while rounding a riverside curve in the Bronx. More than 60 were injured.

Donovan says all passengers have been accounted for.

The accident occurred on the Hudson line, which carries 26,000 weekday riders. Federal authorities are embarking on an exhaustive investigation into what caused the derailment.
