Amtrak engineer remarked on train speed 6 seconds before crash: NTSB

Amtrak engineer remarked on train speed 6 seconds before crash: NTSB(Reuters) – Six seconds before an Amtrak train derailed off a bridge and onto a highway near Seattle, the engineer remarked that the train was speeding, U.S. investigators said on Friday. The engineer then applied the brakes but apparently not the emergency brake, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) said in a statement after retrieving and reviewing data from the data recorder and inward- and outward-facing cameras. Monday’s crash south of Seattle killed three people and sent about 100 others to hospitals.
