Derailed Metro_North Train was Going 82mph on 30mph Curve

Sounds to me like the engineer fucked up big time. He says the brakes failed, but some officials are labeling it 'human error'.

My first thought was that someone did that on "purpose". That is very sad that 4 people died and many were seriously injured.

It appears he was "nodding off"...unfortunately he was driving a train and not a lawnmower. That's SO fucked up. He can get jail time for this ...yeah? At least he wasn't drunk or under the influence or nuckin.

I couldn't believe it, when I read this eek. I think a lot of these guys work double shifts, transit workers, too.
