NTSB Asks FBI To Investigate Whether Amtrak Crash Train Was Hit By Bullet

Via the Hill:
An Amtrak train that crashed outside of Philadelphia this week may have been the target of an attack. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) said on Friday that the FBI had been called in to investigate the possibility that the train was hit by a bullet or some other object. According to the NTSB, an assistant conductor in the train’s café car claimed to have overheard a regional train engineer saying he had been “hit by a rock or shot at.” Inspectors reviewing the scene of the crash have “seen damage to the left hand lower portion of the Amtrak windshield,” an NTSB member said on Friday, prompting the FBI’s involvement.
