NEW YORK — Gov. Andrew Cuomo says he thinks speed will turn out to be a factor in the derailment of a New York City commuter train that killed four people and injured more than 60.

The National Transportation Safety Board is probing Sunday's Metro-North crash in the Bronx.

Cuomo said Monday on NBC's "Today" show that other possible factors ranged from equipment failure and operator failure to a track problem.

Railroad spokesman Aaron Donovan says cranes are in the process of hoisting the tilted car that was connected to the locomotive back on the track. The locomotive already was righted.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority warns commuters to expect crowded trains on Monday morning. It also is providing shuttle buses. Donovan says no major delays were reported during the early part of the rush hour.
