NTSB: Brakes On Train Showed No Signs of Malfunction

(Yonkers, NY) -- NTSB board member Earl Weener says there's no indication the brakes malfunctioned on the New York commuter train that derailed Sunday.
The derailment killed four and injured 60. Weener says the board also found no evidence of alcohol abuse being a factor in the crash. Drug tests are still pending.
NTSB board member Earl Weener says investigators looked at the brake system.
Weener says investigators talked to people involved with the accident.

The head of the union representing Metro North engineer William Rockefeller says Rockefeller dozed off at the throttle, just before his train derailed Sunday, killing four people and injuring more than 60. Anthony Bottalico of the Association of Commuter Rail Employees says when Rockefeller woke up it was too late; the train was barreling much too fast into a curve.
