New York commuter train hits car killing six

A commuter train has hit a vehicle at a level crossing north of New York City, killing six people and injuring 15, officials say.

The train, with about 650 passengers on board, hit the Jeep Cherokee near Valhalla - about 20 miles (32km) from New York - on Tuesday evening.

The vehicle's female driver was killed, along with five people on the train, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said.
