- The engineer "made a comment regarding an over speed condition" after six seconds before the derailment. Officials said earlier this week that the engineer was in a cab with a conductor and that the train's brakes were engaged automatically, not by the engineer. Initial railroad plans proposed by the Washington state government would have eliminated the turn, allowing trains to safely enter the area at higher speeds, according to the Journal.

On Monday, an Amtrak train traveling from Seattle to Portland derailed near Tacoma while reportedly traveling too fast around a curve sharp enough to require a 30-miles-per-hour speed limit, killing three people and sending more than 100 to the hospital.

The NTSB's findings are based on the locomotive event data recorder and inward and outward-facing cameras on the train. The board said it will take a least a year to investigate, determine a cause and make recommendations to avoid another accident. The NTSB ruled the derailment was caused by a distracted train engineer.

"The engineer's actions were consistent with the application of the locomotive's brakes just before the recording ended". Hart told lawmakers that technology known as positive train control is created to prevent derailments caused by "over-speeding".

Washington, Ottawa clash in Bombardier trade fight
If Bombardier wins, Chicago-based Boeing says its smallest 737 model could face unfair competition from the CSeries for decades. The U.S. decision means that the relations between the country and its neighbor, Canada are likely to be terribly strained.

Almost 300 people have died in train crashes that could have been prevented if railroads across the US implemented critical speed-control technology that federal safety investigators have been pushing for close to five decades, according to rail crash data obtained by The Associated Press.

Experts have said it is likely the technology would have prevented Monday's derailment in Washington state.

A Chicago law firm has been hired to represent six people injured in the derailment, according to Michael Krzak, an attorney with Clifford Law Offices.

Congress for years has extended the deadlines for railroads to implement positive train control. Investigators have said they are looking into whether the engineer was distracted by the second person or by something else.
