A press release from the National Transportation Safety Board posted Saturday reported that the train that crashed into Hoboken Terminal can't be removed from the station due to structural damage and extensive debris. 


The event recorder and camera from the car that controlled the train are still inaccessible to authorities at this time. 

With the help of NJ Transit, investigators were able to obtain video from other trains that were at Hoboken Terminal, just in case they may have caught something important on tape. 

The event recorder from the following locomotive has been sent to the manufacturer's headquarters on Kentucky and its contents are being downloaded. 

Investigators completed a walking inspection of the track, but found nothing that would have caused the train to crash. 

They also believe that there were no signal anomalies. A full study, however, cannot be completed until the accident train is removed from the terminal. 

The NTSB interviewed the engineer of the accident train, but won't release transcripts until all the interviews they have scheduled are completed. 

In the wake of the accident, many are wondering about safety procedures surrounding trains.
