The train?s engineer was treated at the hospital after the crash, then spent hours in a Philadelphia police station on Wednesday.



The release of the information constitutes the first major development since the National Transportation Safety Board pointed to excessive speed as a key factor.

Investigators say the train was going more than 100 miles per hour as it approached a curve with a speed limit of 50 miles per hour.
