twnutes before the derailment he eeard radio traffic between a dispatcher and the engineer of a philadelphia commuter train that had been hit by a rock. the dispatcher asked him a couple times if he needed badical attention, bostian said. they went back and forth a few times. as train 188 approached the commuter train, bostian said: t reporter: bostian told investigators the incident got him thinking about a coworker in trlifornia who was injured in a fain collision and had glass impact his eye from hitting a tractor-trailer. bostian then accelerated the hitrak train going into a curve, hitting 106mph before slamming on the brakes, but only seconds before the train left the tracks. >> all of those things put iogether created, i believe, an environment where he maybe lost situational awareness. >> reporter: former national fansportation safety board osair mark rosenkur. d it would be kind of like you driving down the beltway, and you're in deep thought or
listening to something, and you were supposed to get off on an exit and you missed it. you really don't realize where you are at that moment. >> reporter: bostian also told investigators he was concerned for his own safety moving through the area where that commuter train had been struck. scott, tomorrow the national transportation safety board is expected to renew its call for positive train control, technology that could slow a speeding train. >> pelley: kris van cleave reporting from our los angeles newsroom. well, thank you. cull, there seems to be no end to the long security lines at airports. at chicago's o'hare, look at this, 450 people missed their flights yesterday. the than 100 of them had to spend the night on cots. ere t.s.a. doesn't have enough irreeners. at least two airlines are exploring the idea of hiring extra people to speed up the lines. today the supreme court punted on one of the biggest cases of the term, whether obamacare can require religious groups to offer contraception coverage
through their insurance plans. you'll recall there's a vacancy on the court, and today the justices apparently did not want to risk a 4-4 tie, which would have led to different laws in y fferent states. we they sent the case back to the lower courts to explore a compromise. some republicans opposed to ganald trump are trying to recruit someone to run against him as an independent. here's major garrett on how that's going. >> i just think running third party doesn't feel right. >> reporter: a long-shot effort no mount an independent campaign fizzled further today when john kasich, one of the last on the list of potential candidates, ruled it out. d a third party candidacy would pp viewed as a silly thing. i don't think it's appropriate. >> reporter: 2012 republican nominee mitt romney asked kasich to consider a run, part of a recruitment effort led by rsnservative writers bill kristol and erick erickson to stop donald trump. cepublican party chairman reince priebus dismissed the idea.
>> it's a suicide mission because you're not only changing and throwing out eight years of the white house, but you're also srowing out potentially generations on the supreme turt. >> reporter: the obstacles for a orn are daunting. organizers would need to acquire more than 880,000 valid signatures to place a candidate in the ballot in all 50 states, and the deadline to qualify in texas has already passed. the anti-trump forces worry about the billionaire's political philosophy and personal character. those concerns were magnified by recent stories alleging trump haed false identities to bolster his image in the 1980s and that he can be crude and demeaning to women. conservatives also fear trump is an easy target for democrats. eris was president obama yesterday at rutgers university. >> in politics and in life, ignorance is not a virtue. it's not cool to not know what you're talking about. >> reporter: conservatives opposed to trump say they need st00 million to wage an independent campaign in just a
few key states. wht, scott, there's no sign n o.p. donors who have already given $18 million to an anti- trump super pac have any stomach for an even costlier endeavor. >> pelley: major garrett for us tonight. major. thank you. well, hillary clinton isn't having any free run to the nomination. bernie sanders is favored tomorrow in kentucky and oregon. but it won't change the inevitable. clinton is only 144 delegates short of clinching the nomination. here's nancy cordes. >> it's time people stop listening to republican propaganda. th reporter: in kentucky, , inton blasted the g.o.p. and its likely nominee, trying out her trump impression on jobs. >> his answer is, "i'm going to create 'em. they're going to be great. i know how to do it, but i'm not nglling you what it is i'm going to do." >> reporter: she did not do her ulst bernie sanders, though he's ste one who could beat her in two states tomorrow. and he's already laying the
e oundwork in puerto rico. >> the people of the united states cannot continue a colonial-type relationship with the people of puerto rico. >> reporter: clinton can afford to lose a few more states, but she can't afford discord like this. we recount, recount, recount! s> reporter: over the weekend, "die hard" sanders supporters protested the delegate rules in nevada. >> we need stability in the democratic party. >> reporter: it's a sign s mocrats will have some of their own struggles with unity. recognizing that clinton is going to be tied up with these t imaries for a while, the biggest super pac supporting her announced today, scott, that they would begin airing ads ruainst donald trump this week, nearly a month earlier than they had planned. >> pelley: nancy cordes for us tonight. thank you, nancy. a cancer patient has received the first penis transplant in this country. and what are the odds that everybody could walk away from a
