CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A state agency spokesman says a logging truck that collided with a sightseeing train in West Virginia was inspected about two days prior to the accident and no problems were found.
Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety spokesman Lawrence Messina says the truck's cab was severely damaged. That will make it difficult to reconstruct the brakes to determine whether they were a factor.
The truck's driver was killed and 23 people were injured when the collision occurred on Cheat Mountain on Friday. Messina said that four people remained hospitalized as of Sunday night.
The Public Service Commission is investigating the accident because it involved a logging truck.
Messina says the accident didn't meet the National Transportation Safety Board's criteria for investigating during the partial government shutdown.
