The National Transportation Safety Board concluded that William Rockefeller, who was the engineer on the commuter train, had "severe obstructive sleep apnea." Safety experts say millions of lives will be at risk now that U.S. officials have dropped plans to require that truck drivers and train engineers be screened for sleep apnea. Officials say testing should be left up to railroads and trucking companies. One railroad that does test, Metro-North in the New York City suburbs, found that 11.6 percent of its engineers have sleep apnea. (AP Photo/Mark Lennihan, File)
