The National Transportation Safety Board planned to release more information Saturday about what caused the train to barrel through a station and crash into a barrier. The agency is seeking information from the train’s engineer, the black boxes that record train data and other crew members.
Authorities would not estimate how fast the train was going before it hit a bumper at the end of its track. But the speed limit into the station is 10 mph.
An NTSB spokesman said the agency did not plan to hold a news conference on Saturday. a NJ Transit engineer for about 18 years, three times Friday. The official, who was not authorized to discuss the case and spoke on condition of anonymity, would not disclose what Gallagher said but described him as cooperative. it is under a collapsed section of the station’s roof.
