US: Train going too fast at curve before wreck

Published: 12.03.13, 00:45 / Israel News

A commuter train that derailed over the weekend, killing four passengers, was hurtling at 82 mph as it entered a 30 mph curve, a federal investigator said Monday. But whether the wreck was the result of human error or brake trouble was still unclear, he said.

 

Asked why the train was going so fast, National Transportation Safety Board member Earl Weener said the information on the locomotive's speed was preliminary and extracted from the Metro-North train's two data recorders, taken from the wreckage after the Sunday morning accident in the Bronx.
