(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.
