A commuter train derailed Sunday in the Bronx neighborhood of New York City, killing four people and injuring at least 60. The derailed cars very nearly fell off the track into the Hudson River, and at least one rider told the Associated Press that the train was rounding a bend too quickly. The early-morning train from Poughkeepsie to Manhattan was only the latest example of trouble this year for the commuter railroad.

After Sunday’s reboot of, officials say the worst of the Affordable Care Act website’s delays and troubles might be done. The government said the website has had hundreds of bugs and suffered from insufficient equipment and management, but it estimates now that more than 50,000 people can be logged on at once. With their estimate of 800,000 people being able to sign up each day, millions of people could get the coverage they need by the Dec. 23 deadline.

Details continued to emerge Sunday about the death of actor Paul Walker, who died at 40 years old Saturday in a fiery car accident in Los Angeles. Sheriff’s department officials said that speed was a factor in the one-car crash, which killed Walker and the driver of the car. Walker was best known for his role in the “Fast and Furious” movies and earlier hits such as “Varsity Blues.”

The Cleveland Browns lost Sunday 32-28 to the Jacksonville Jaguars after a late rally by the Jaguars that culminated in a touchdown pass with 40 seconds left to wide receiver Cecil Shorts, who is a Cleveland native. The Browns have now lost six of their last seven games, but a small bright spot was wide receiver Josh Gordon, who had 10 catches and a team record of 261 yards. Gordon is the first player in NFL history to have back-to-back 200-yard games.
