Grainy security footage has been released capturing the fatal Amtrak derailment on Tuesday. The video shows the train from a distance and then what appears to be an explosion. Eight people are reported dead and dozens still missing. The train was reportedly going 106 miles per hour on a 50 mile per hour curve before seven cars derailed in Philadelphia. The investigation is  now centering on the 32-year-old engineer Brandon Bostian. Bostian suffered a concussion and has no recollection of the crash. He only remembers driving the train, the crash’s impact and then calling 911.
