Federal safety investigators begin probe of accident that killed 2 workers amid transit strike
Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Sunday, October 20, 2013 8:53 PM EDT
A federal investigator says the out-of-service commuter train that struck and killed two San Francisco Bay area transit workers did not have a front-facing video recorder that would help reconstruct the moments leading up to the accident.
Saturday's accident on Bay Area Rapid Transit tracks in the East Bay city of Walnut Creek took place against the backdrop of a contentious and disruptive labor strike that has kept BART trains from carrying passengers since Friday.
Southworth says that even if the strike ended immediately, the ongoing investigation means it would probably take a few days before trains could run on those tracks.
