Over 200 people were injured and seven killed in an Amtrack train accident in Philadelphia earlier this week, according to the Huffington Post. The train was travelling from New York City to Washington at 100 mph, which is twice the speed limit, when the crash occurred. The engineer, whom claims he does remember the accident, slammed on the emergency brakes, derailing the entire train. An NTSB board member stated that the accident could have been avoided with the installation of an advanced safety system. The engineer, Brandon Bostian, suffered a concussion as of result of the wreck, which may have impaired his memory. An investigation into the accident is ongoing.
