Dozens of people are still recovering this morning, some in critical condition following the deadly crash that's left a mangled mess here of twisted train cars. And as federal investigators look for a cause, Governor Andrew Cuomo telling us:

(Cuomo) "It was about speed. The question is going to be why was the train speeding."

The train's engineer also reportedly told investigators that his breaks didn't work as he approached this curve. The train station remains closed, likely for days leaving thousands of New Yorkers to find a different way to work.
