New York City's Metro-North Railroad is already getting hit with multimillion-dollar civil claims over a deadly commuter train derailment.
The engineer whose speeding commuter train ran off the rails along a curve, killing four people, nodded at the controls before the wreck, and by the time he caught himself it was too late, a union official said Tuesday.
National Transportation Safety Board officials say that the Metro-North train that derailed in the Bronx was going 82 miles per hour in a 30 mile per hour curve when a number of cars jumped the tracks.
