Governor Dannel P. Malloy said five people had critical injuries and one person was very critical.
A train that left New York City for New Haven derailed and was then struck by a westbound train on an adjacent track.
There were no reports of fatalities.
Malloy also said it could take until Monday for normal service to be restored.
Onlookers gathered at the scene near Fairfield, just outside Bridgeport.
The governor said the accident will have a ‘‘big impact on the Northeast Corridor.’’
