On  May 12, 2015–Amtrak train 188 was going 106 miles-per-hour, more than twice the speed limit, when it entered a sharp curve and crashed north of a Philadelphia station in Frankford Junction, Pa.

Eight people were killed and more than 200 injured. The lawyer for Bostian says he doesn’t remember the crash. Boston refused to give a formal interview, and he and his lawyer has said little since.

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) report is expected to include black box data, interviews with first responders and crew members and images from the scene.

NTSB has told Congress there were no anomalies with the track, brakes or locomotive.
