The driver never braked during as he sped round the curve.'When there is an accident, the emergency brake system goes to place,' she told Buzzfeed.

'It was not something the engineer actually initiated himself.'One factor that could have potentially slowed down, or even avoided the crash altogether would have been critical speed-control technology.

Officials have revealed that a second person was in the cab during the deadly Amtrak crash- as investigators look into whether they may have distracted the driver.

But instead of waiting until the safety system was installed and certified, Amtrak decided to open the new route without the positive train control.

A positive train control system could have detected the speeding and automatically applied the brakes to stop the train, said Najmedin Meshkati, a University of Southern California professor who has studied the technology for three decades.'It is another layer of safety,' he said.

He will be missed.' A friend paid tribute to both men on Hamre's Facebook page, saying: 'As we all knew they would be, Jim and his great friend Zach Wilhoite were on Amtrak Train 501 on the first run over the new route and they were, unbelievably, two of the three killed in the horrible derailment of that train.' Authorities are investigating the wreck and have said that the train was going 80 mph in a 30 mph zone, derailing south of Seattle and toppling some cars on Interstate 5 below.

Agents from the US Department of Homeland Security and Dutch police visited Gran's home in 2011.

The investigation found that Gran had been in communication with the ringleader Robert Mikelsons since 2004 who had claimed the sexual abuse was good for the children, according to court papers.

He was placed on paid administrative leave for months until he pleaded guilty and served two years in prison before his release in 2015. Gran was among the three passengers who died on the maiden voyage of a faster train route between Seattle and Portland, Oregon.

While his family conceded that Gran had a past, his mother Linda Daniels told Seattle Pi her son had recovered from his 'little blip' and had made a new life for himself.
