NEW YORK, NY – Days after New York’s Metro-North Hudson train crashed, killing four people and injuring 67, a search for exactly what went wrong immediately went underway.

The National Transportation Safety Board confirmed Monday that speed was a factor, saying the train was going 82 mph into a curve, nearly three times the 30 mph limit for the curve. But now investigators are taking a closer look at the train’s engineer. Could fatigue have been a factor? He reportedly told investigators that he was “Going along and I’m in a daze. I don’t know what happened.”

Whether mechanical or human error or both, hopefully we never have to see a scene like this again.
