BREAKING NEWS

Amtrak CEO apologizes for fatal Washington train derailment
December 20, 2017




National Transportation Safety Board member Bella Dinh-Zarr
(NATIONAL) -- Amtrak's co-CEO has apologized for the fatal high-speed train derailment Monday in Washington state that killed three people and injured 100, according to a report by CNN.

"It's not acceptable that we are involved in these kinds of accidents. We are terribly sorry to the people that are involved," Richard Anderson said.

The train, on it maiden high-speed run from Seattle to Olympia derailed Monday after speeding around a curve at almost three times the speed limit.

The train was traveling about 80 mph in a 30-mph zone and it is still not clear why that happened, said National Transportation Safety Board member Bella Dinh-Zarr.

In addition, a technology called PTC or Positive Train Control that can automatically slow down a speeding train, was not in use. That segment of the tracks in DuPont, Washington, had centralized traffic control (CTC), according to Dinh-Zarr who said, "The locomotive was in the process of getting a system of PTC installed but it was not yet functional."

All of the crew members remain hospitalized. NTSB investigators are setting up interviews with them. "As they are able, we will get more information from them," said Dinh-Zarr on Tuesday.

She also said the train's emergency brake appeared to have been automatically activated, rather than by the engineer during the accident.
