Questions Remain About Deadly Metro North Crash

posted by WKIP - 

(Bronx, NY)  -- Questions remain  about the Metro-North engineer who dozed off four years ago while his  speeding train jumped the tracks in the Bronx and killed four people.  

Federal investigators concluded that William Rockefeller was suffering  from sleep apnea and also affected by a shift change.  But now, "The  Journal News" is reporting that prosecutors investigated claims that  Rockefeller was up late the night before and told an assistant conductor  that it was her job to keep him awake.  Rockefeller never faced  criminal charges because the co-worker, who suffered serious head  injuries in the crash, denied the conversation ever happened.
