NEW YORK (REUTERS) - Drug and alcohol tests conducted on the driver of a New York commuter train that derailed on Sunday, killing four people, have come back negative, National Transportation Safety Board member Earl Weener said on Wednesday.

The seven-car Metro-North train was travelling at 132kmh, nearly three times the 48kmh speed limit for the curved section of track where it crashed, investigators have said.
