NEW YORK - While the Metro-North Railroad is already getting hit with multimillion-dollar civil claims over a deadly commuter train derailment, prosecutors will face tough choices when deciding whether to bring criminal charges against the train's engineer, who told investigators he nodded or fell into a daze at the controls.
Federal and city investigators are gathering information about Sunday's train accident, which killed four people and injured more than 60, and likely will spend months analyzing the conduct of engineer William Rockefeller.
