No fatigue, illness, train engineer tells U.S. crash investigators

(Reuters) - The engineer of the Amtrak train that crashed in Philadelphia told investigators that he did not feel fatigued or have any illness before the accident, a National Transportation Safety Board official said on Friday.

The official, Robert Sumwalt, told a news conference that the engineer, Brandon Bostian, was "extremely cooperative" during a 1 -1/2 hour interview but that he did not remember anything of Tuesday's crash that killed eight people.
