Train engineer sent text seconds before LA crash

By  | 

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Federal investigators say the engineer of a commuter train sent a text message just seconds before a deadly collision last month in Los Angeles.

The National Transportation Safety Board said Wednesday that cell phone records of Robert Sanchez show he received a text message a minute and 20 seconds before the crash. The agency says he sent one about a minute later.
