Death of Newburgh woman, Donna Smith, killed in Bronx train derailement, ‘not fair’

Family and friends of the victims killed in the Bronx train derailment are just trying to make sense of the shocking tragedy.

“It’s just not fair for it to end like this,” Kathy Cerone told the Times Herald Record. Cerone lives in the other half of the duplex Donna Smith lived in for 14 years.

She is described as a “hardworking woman and a Hudson Valley Renegades baseball fanatic who spent much of her free time with her younger sister, Linda,” in the article.

Smith was identified with James G. Lovell, 58, of Cold Spring, N.Y.; James M. Ferrari, 59, of Montrose, N.Y.; and Ahn Kisook, 35, from the New York City borough of Queens as the four victims in the horrible crash.

The article details an account by one of the surviving riders with graphic and longlasting scras from the crash.

“One lady had her face smashed in. There was another lady whose feet were crushed,” he recalled.
