The event recorder and camera from the controlling cab of the accident train remain inaccessible to investigators.

Authorities investigating the cause of Thursday morning's train crash in Hoboken, New Jersey, still need to recover a black box from the scene.

Months before Thursday's deadly train crash, federal rail officials found dozens of violations during an audit that focused on NJ Transit's safety and operations, a US official confirmed to The Associated Press.

The speed estimate is based on the extent of damage, not on data from the train's instruments.
