At a news conference on Friday, a lead investigator said that an assistant conductor heard a radio transmission in which an engineer on another line reported that his train had been hit by a projectile; the engineer on the Amtrak train said that his had been hit too. Investigators have found a fist-sized circular area of impact on the train’s windshield and have called in the FBI to analyze it. Investigators have now also interviewed the engineer who was “extremely cooperative.” The engineer said he was not fatigued or sick at the time of the accident, but could not remember anything about the derailment that left eight dead and over 200 injured.
