FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- This video was made by a group of skateboarders who said they were at Rampage Skate Equipment Park in Bridgeport when the Metro-North trains collided nearby Friday afternoon, according to their YouTube post.

WARNING: THE VIDEO INCLUDES GRAPHIC LANGUAGE THROUGHOUT. But it documents the immediate aftermath of the crash and shows many people evacuating the trains and the area. Extensive track and train damage can be seen as the video-makers walk up and down along the accident scene.

Foul play has been ruled out in the crash that left more than 60 people injured. The National Transportation Safety Board is looking at a fractured rail joint in its investigation.

Metro-North train service remains disrupted, with no service beyond South Norwalk.
