106 miles an hour and not know what you are doing? >> many of our client are very upset. that mr. bostian has this sudden memory loss. >> we are skeptical when people, all of a sinned, have amnesia. >> i think that mr. hewett and the other victims of this derailment are going to be very upset to learn that mr. bostian's testimony has changed regarding what he remembers. i think that is adding injury to injury. >> well, all he did remember, according to the testimony that was redeveloped in public documents, was hit that accelerator switch in the up position, and then realizing he was going too fast, going into the curve, and then braking. not only reduce the speed from 106 down to 102. so far, with a was ruled out, was mechanical error, nothing was mechanically wrong with the train. all the signals on the tracks were working a-okay, and the track itself was in fine shape. so that leaves one last thing,
