Union rep.: Engineer "nodding off" before crash

CNN is learning new details in what could have caused the deadly train derailment in New York on Sunday.

According to officials, the train's engineer, William Rockefeller, passed a breathalyzer but told investigators he was "in a daze" and doesn't know "what happened' in the moments leading up to the crash.

The national transportation safety board says there was no problem with the brakes. Four people were killed and at least 67 others were injured when the commuter train entered a sharp turn going 82 miles per hour, in a 30 miles per hour zone.
