NTSB: Train going too fast at curve before wreck

Posted: Updated:

YONKERS, N.Y. (AP) — A federal investigator says a New York City commuter train that derailed, killing four passengers, was traveling 82 mph as it entered a 30 mph curve.

But it's still not clear whether the wreck was caused by human error or mechanical trouble.

Earl Weener of the National Transportation Safety Board says he can't disclose what the train's engineer has told investigators.
