A member of the National Transportation Safety Board says investigators plan to conduct interviews Monday or Tuesday with the engineer and conductor of the train involved in a fatal derailment in New York City.

The crash Sunday killed four people and injured more than 60 others.

The NTSB's Earl Weener said Monday at the crash site that a second data recorder was found in the train's front car and has been sent to Washington for analysis.

Weener said investigators are looking for information on the speed of the train, how the brakes were applied and the throttle setting.

The other recorder was found earlier in the rear locomotive.

Weener says they've already had some success in retrieving data. But the information has to be validated before it's made public.
