Hearing Today on Fatal Train Collision (Feb 26, 2013)

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - The National Transportation Safety Board is slated to hold an investigative hearing into last year's fatal train collision that killed three people in the Oklahoma Panhandle.

The hearing begins at 8 a.m. Tuesday morning in Washington.

An early report issued by the agency last year found that the two freight trains that collided with each other in a fiery crash on June 24 were not speeding.

The accident killed three of the four people aboard the trains. The fourth jumped from the slower-moving train just before the crash and survived.

Data couldn't be recovered from the lead locomotives, which almost welded together in the white-hot fire that broke out when they crashed. But the NTSB report said it retrieved recorders from engines that were helping push the trains.
