At least six people are dead after a crowded Metro-North commuter train hit a vehicle on the tracks north of White Plains, New York, Tuesday night, sparking a fire that gutted the lead car of the train, according to the MTA. Among the dead were five passengers on the train and the driver of the black Jeep Cherokee that was struck. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority said the gates came down on top of the SUV at the crossing, which was stopped on the tracks. The driver got out to look at the rear of the car, then she got back in and drove forward and was struck. Passengers were evacuated to the back of the Harlem Line train then were taken to a local rock-climbing gym for shelter, the Cliffs. Buses were en route there to get to them to Pleasantville, a spokesperson for the railroad said.
