Driver in fatal New York crash 'zoned out': union

Reuters--The driver of a New York commuter train that derailed on Sunday, killing four people, told federal investigators he “zoned out” shortly before the crash, the driver's labor union leader said.

The seven-car train was traveling at 82 miles per hour (132 km per hour), nearly three times the speed limit for the curved section of track where it crashed, investigators have said. The driver, William Rockefeller, 46, applied the brakes five seconds before it derailed.
