Amtrak train possibly pelted or ‘shot at’ before crash, investigators say



The investigation into the Amtrak train derailment in Philadelphia this week took a new turn Friday as investigators began examining damage to the locomotive’s windshield to see if it had been struck by an object or shot at shortly before the crash.

The National Transportation Safety Board said it had interviewed an assistant conductor on the train, who said she thought she remembered the train’s engineer saying something over the radio about the locomotive being struck.
