A doctor testified that NJ Transit bosses didn't noticed that one of their engineers suddenly gained weight and didn't bother to test him for sleep apnea, leading up to the 2016 fatal Hoboken train wreck , the New York Post reports.
The National Transportation Safety Board held the final hearing on the Hoboken crash and a similar one in Long Island that occurred last year, on Tuesday.
"In both cases, the board found that the engineers were suffering from obstructive sleep apnea and had passed out as they entered the train terminals," The Post says. "Regular testing would have prevented the incidents, the board found."
