Amtrak Resumes Service While Train Tragedy Investigation Continues

Four passengers on the Amtrak commuter train that derailed in Philadelphia last week filed a federal lawsuit on Monday against the U.S. rail service, as operations resumed on the heavily traveled Northeast Corridor.

The lawsuit, filed in Philadelphia, cited "serious and disabling" injuries from the May 12 derailment that killed eight people and injured more than 200 others.

The case appeared to be the first filed by a non-employee of the U.S. passenger rail service. Last week, an Amtrak worker who was riding the train as a passenger, filed the first lawsuit, citing a brain injury he said he suffered in the crash.

The latest passengers' lawsuit, seeking unspecified damages, accused Amtrak and train engineer Brandon Bostian of negligence and recklessness.

Bostian, 32, who suffered a concussion, told investigators he has no memory of what occurred after the train pulled out of the North Philadelphia station, just before the crash.

Filing the suit were two Spanish citizens, Felicidad Redondo Iban and Maria Jesus Redondo Iban, as well as Daniel Armyn of New York and Amy Miller of New Jersey.

Felicidad Redondo Iban has required several surgeries to avoid amputation of her right arm, according to the complaint.

An Amtrak representative could not be reached immediately for comment.

An investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) into the cause of the crash was ongoing.

The train, headed from Washington to New York with 243 people on board, was traveling at twice the 50-mile-per-hour speed limit when it entered a sharp curve and derailed just north of Philadelphia.

The NTSB is seeking to explain why the train accelerated to 106 mph from 70 mph in the minute before it derailed.

Amtrak commuter service, suspended since the derailment, resumed early on Monday on the Northeast Corridor, the nation's busiest passenger rail line.

More than 750,000 passenger trips are taken daily on the stretch from Washington through Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York to Boston.

Passengers leaving Washington generally said they felt safe as service was restored.

Maintance workers repair damaged lines after poles were knocked over when an Amtrak Northeast Regional Train derailed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on May 13, 2015. US investigators on Wednesday painstakingly combed through the twisted wreckage of an Amtrak train for clues as to why it derailed in Philadelphia, leaving at least six people dead and more than 200 injured. Officials warned the death toll could rise after the crash late Tuesday along the busy northeast US rail corridor linking Washington and New York, as some of the 243 passengers and crew believed to have been on the train had not yet been accounted for.
