New York Train Wreck Engineer Suspended Without Pay
NEW YORK (AP) — The engineer driving the commuter train that went off the rails in New York City last weekend has been suspended without pay.
A spokesman for Metro-North Railroad said Thursday that William Rockefeller is “out of service, and not being paid.”
According to his lawyer and union representative, Rockefeller experienced a momentary loss of awareness as he zoomed down the tracks.
Four people were killed and more than 60 others injured when the train derailed inches from the river in the Bronx early Sunday.
