New information about the cause of the fatal New Jersey train crash that occurred in September has now been brought to light. According to both the National Transportation Safety Review Board and the lawyer (for the train engineer): sleep apnea is to blame for the unfortunate September train crash.
This Hoboken accident took place during the morning rush hour and resulted in the death of one female standing on the platform and injured more than 100 individuals in its totality.
Thomas Gallagher, the engineer of the New Jersey train that crashed, was diagnosed post-accident with a condition known as sleep apnea. According to Jack Arseneault, the lawyer of Gallagher, this post-accident diagnosis was delayed. Arseneault asserts the delay was due to the different medication that Gallagher had received as a result of the crash.
