VALHALLA, N.Y. -- Thursday marks one week since the Commerce Street railroad crossing reopened in Valhalla following the fatal Metro-North crash that killed six people on Tuesday, Feb. 3.

The six victims all suffered burns to the body and blunt-force trauma, Westchester County officials reported on Tuesday.

The crash occurred when a Metro-North train collided with an SUV on the tracks. Five men aboard the train -- four from Westchester (two from Bedford and two from New Castle) and one from Danbury, Conn., were killed -- as well as the Edgemont woman in the SUV.
