"action news" reporter, john rawlins was at today's hearing. he joins us from washington, d.c. >> reporter: let me start with a question here. you ever driven down a dark road at night and have you something on your mind that is important and all of a sudden you realized you missed your turned it's a loss situational situation. that is what investigators think happened to the engineer on the night of the crash. >> that was the best conclusion we could come to as to why he was trying to accelerate. >> after excluding drugs and alcohol or trying to use a cell
phone. they believe that engineer, brandon bostian lost his situation ala wearness. he was involved in radio chatter up the track reporting damage from thrown rocks, the orange line on this map. indicates amtrak route north as bostian talked to dispatchers, investigators believe that time is critical. >> with his attention diverted to the amtrak train, the engineer may have lost situation ala wearness. his train was at the blue arrow on the map but he believed he passed the junction curve and was clear to go fast along the straight away. >> don't know for sure what was happening, he was unable to remember a lot of details, we don't know for sure what happened but we suspect he may have been on a curve similar to what he would be on after frankford junction.
>> but it was not past and amtrak 188 crashed doing 106 in a 50 miles per hour and eight people died. the nta says that could have been avoided. >> we shouldn't be here today. certainly there are lots of things that amtrak and others could have done in order to have prevented this derailment. >> reporter: well, in the last year amtrak has installed positive train control all along its portion of the northeast corridor. the ceo was here be asked about the status at this time. he is still an employee with the amtrak and the railroad and is now suspended, that saul he would say, he would say no more. as for another unresolved issue, two members of the district attorney's office from philadelphia were here in the
audience to listen to the ntsb's report. live in washington, john rawlins, channel 6 "action news." >> they weren't the only ones listening. attorneys representing victims of the crash. they are not sold on the findings. particularly that brandon bostian lost situational awareness. they want him held accountable for what they call reckless behavior. they did not mince words that he changed his testimony and his account of what happened multiple times. >> that raises red flags when someone selectively says all of a sudden i remember everything now except the critical minute beforehand how i have to explain how this occurred. i don't buy than i don't think
the jury will buy that other. >> they are looking for concrete answers now as to exactly why he accelerated when he took the critical and now deadly turn. they expect to dig deeper during cross-examination. to date 120 victims and their families filed separate complaints. you can find all the details at 6abc.com. along with the hearing in washington, we have video and photos from the crash and aftermath. be sure to follow the entire "action news" team on facebook and twitter for continuing coverage. >> all right alicia thank you. our sunny start to the work week was rather short lived as the rain is back. >> lets head to adam joseph with a first check of the accuweather forecast. >> it's kind of a common denominator, rain is coming back into the picture here as we look at stormtracker 6 live double scan most of it is breaking apart and ending to the north
and west of philadelphia, still steady rain here through much of new jersey and southern delaware, as we widen out on double scan live radar you see this is very unsettled down the eastern seaboard and west to st. louis, this is another round of energy that pushes in here during the day tomorrow so it will fall apart. we won't see a repeat of the rain but the clouds look to linger. stormtracker 6 live double scan closer here from wrightstown and seaside heights and down to southern new jersey and delaware, it's solid area of light showers. again, breaking apart in philadelphia and wilmington into the northwestern suburbs into the lehigh valley. and another snapshot that doesn't look like may. 50s for binghamton and washington and richmond and pittsburgh is one of the warmer spots, like buffalo around 60. this evening if you head to the phillies game, it's cloudy and

we knew he would blame this on his agent, saying it was tom conden that wanted to orchestrate a trade. bradford and wentz taking the field and their interaction was minimal. you can see the difference, you really could. doug peterson maintained that bradford is their guy and wentz is the third string quarterback. this is how it all went down why he decided to leave the team and demand a trade. >> you know it was one of those things, when i first found out about the trade i was frustrated. i felt like i needed some time. i could have stayed here could have continued to work here but i'm not sure my head really would have been here those two weeks. >> i talked to sam since he has been back, i told him my feelings have not changed.
he is my guy. my number one guy. >> i am not completely naive, you realize if the organization made a move to get up to two, at some point it's probably not going to be my team. >> what did sam say to you. >> not much. we talk football. there is no tension, none of that, just here to compete and help this team get better. >> bradford says he plans to help wentz and help him grow, even though it's helping his eventual replacement. i asked the fans how does he win the guys back being that he dug his own grave here. he fully gets the fan's frustrations and hopes to win some games to win the fans back. we'll is more coming up at 5:00 and at 6:00. jaime apody, channel 6 "action news." >> all right i think winning that will do it jaime. meantime the eagles are not the
only ones making news. today could determine the future for the sixers, the nba holds its draft lottery, the sixers have several different possibilities on the table. the one that the fans are hoping for is that the team walk as way with the first overall pick and the fourth pick after a trade with the lakers and they could walk away with the fourth pick and nothing higher. it starts tonight at 8:00 on espn. it's time now for the "action news" traffic report. we know there is a lot going on in that department. lets go to matt pellman. >> some talk of winning and losing and we know the drivers on the eastbound schuylkill are losing this afternoon. it's quite the mess because of the overturned truck accident in the eastbound lanes past girard avenue and past the zoo. things are uprighted now and now they have all three eastbound lanes blocked. head towards spring garden
