Death Toll in Amtrak Wreck Hits 8; All Aboard Accounted For

The death toll from the Amtrak wreck rose to eight with the discovery of another body in a mangled railcar Thursday, while a lawyer for the train's engineer said his client has no recollection of the crash and wasn't on his cellphone or using drugs or alcohol. Fire Commissioner Derrick Sawyer said that a cadaver dog found the eighth body in the wreckage of the first passenger car Thursday morning, nearly 36 hours after the crash.
Mayor Michael Nutter said that Officials believe they have now accounted for all 243 passengers and crew members who were thought to have been aboard the train.
