MOUNT PLEASANT, N.Y. -- Rep. Nita Lowey led a moment of silence on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday afternoon to honor the victims of yesterday evening’s Metro-North accident in Valhalla.

“Yesterday evening, a commuter train struck an automobile at a grade crossing in Valhalla, resulting in the deaths of six people and many others injured," said Lowey.

“I stand on the House floor today with my colleagues to call for a moment of silence to honor those who lost their lives in this tragic accident, offer sincere condolences to the families of the victims, pray for the full recovery of those injured, and thank our first responders for quickly arriving at the scene to help others.”
