Train Wreck Investigation

Federal investigators say the engineer involved in a fatal train wreck in California last year may have been planning to allow a teenager drive the locomotive later that day.

The engineer reportedly sent dozens of text messages while on duty, including one sent 22 seconds before the crash.

They say the messages include a plan to let a teenager drive the train that evening while the engineer looked on.

Twenty five people were killed in the crash and at least 130 were injured.
