Metrolink Engineer Text-Messaging Seconds before Fatal Crash

Hosted by

Federal investigators say the engineer on the Metrolink train that crashed head on into a Union Pacific freight last month in Chatsworth did send a cell-phone text message. It was 22 seconds before the crash that killed Robert Sanchez and 24 other people. The National Transportation Safety Board is trying to determine why the Metrolink train failed to stop at a signal.
