Was Text Messaging the Primary Cause of the LA Train Crash?

We all know that text messaging and driving are a deadly combo, but what about texting while operating a train? According to SF Gate, The National Transportation and Safety Board is currently investigating whether or not text messaging could have played a part in the deadly Metrolink train collision, which occurred last Friday in LA.


So far, two teens have come forward saying that they received text messages from the engineer Robert Sanchez, who also passed away in the crash, shortly before he failed to stop at the final red signal. Cell phone records and other forms of evidence are being looked at, although Metrolink prohibits rail workers from using cell phones on the job and investigators did not find a cell phone belonging to Sanchez in the wreckage.
