A major update has come in about the fatal derailment of the Metro-North train in the Bronx Sunday morning, shedding some light as to the moments of events that led up to the tragic accident. 11-year engineer William Rockefeller apparently admitted he was falling asleep as the train hit the curve, and woke up to hit the breaks only 6 seconds before the crash.
Four people were killed, and more than 60 others were injured. Sources say these statements came moments after the crash when he was speaking to police. He has been fully cooperative and feels “thoroughly traumatized,” and investigators have ruled out alcohol, drugs and cell phone usage in the incident. Such a tragic accident!
