(Yonkers, NY) -- The National Transportation Safety Board says it's holding its final media briefing on the deadly train derailment in New York later this afternoon. Officials are gathering at the Hampton Inn in Yonkers for the latest on their investigation. Yesterday officials revealed that the Metro North train was going 82-miles-per-hour around the bend when it derailed in Spuyten Duyvil. A new report indicates the train operator may simply have not been paying attention. Sources are telling the "New York Post" that Engineer William Rockefeller told investigators he "zoned out" as the Hudson line train was approaching the curve. Four people were killed, while 63 others were injured.
