The engineer operating the Amtrak train that crashed applied full emergency brakes "just moments" before the train derailed, said Sumwalt. The train was traveling about 106 mph as it headed into a left turn where the maximum speed limit was 50 mph, he said.

But maybe I'm seeing something that isn't there..
The engineer driving the Amtrak train that derailed Tuesday night has been identified as 32-year-old Brandon Bostian.
The attorney for Bostian, a Queens, New York, resident, confirmed his identity to ABC News.
According to his LinkedIn profile, Bostian has worked at Amtrak for nearly nine years, the first half of which he spent as a passenger conductor before he became a passenger engineer in December 2010.
