NTSB Says Amtrak Engineer Didn't Use Cellphone Before Crash

Accident investigators said Wednesday that the engineer driving an Amtrak train wasn't using his cellphone in the moments before the train derailed in Philadelphia last month, deepening the mystery of what caused the accident.
In an updated report, the National Transportation Safety Board said its analysis of phone records "does not indicate that any calls, texts or data usage occurred during the time the engineer was operating the train." The agency also said the engineer, Brandon Bostian, didn't access the train's Wi-Fi system while he was operating the locomotive.
Congress has been pressing the safety board for answers to the key question of whether Bostian was using his phone.
