Adjust font size:

According to local media, a teacher died Saturday afternoon in a hospital after getting injured in the collision.

U.S. federal safety investigators said Saturday that they had recovered two data recorders from the Metrolink train, and a data and video recorder from the freight locomotive, and are analyzing the data to see why the commuter train engineer apparently blew a stop signal.

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger toured the crash scene at noon, and reassured the public that train was a statistically safer way to travel when compared with autos.
