HOBOKEN, N.J. (AP) – The National Transportation Safety Board says it’s still hoping that a second data recorder from last week’s train crash in Hoboken, New Jersey was functioning.

Investigators believe it’s under a collapsed section of the train station’s roof.

Another event data recorder that was supposed to record the train’s speed and braking information wasn’t working. And investigators say the train’s engineer has no memory of the crash.
