The Connecticut Post reports that the National Transportation Safety Board is delving into computerized data and is interviewing crew members in its investigation of the cause of the collision of two Metro-North trains that injured more than 70 people on Friday.
Additionally, sections of fragmented rail have been sent to Washington, D.C. for laboratory analysis to determine whether rail breakage caused the derailment and collision.
The Connecticut Post also reported that five people among those injured in the crash remain hospitalized.
