WASHINGTON (AP) – A federal accident investigator says the engineer at the controls of an Amtrak train when it fatally derailed in Philadelphia has been “extremely cooperative.”

The National Transportation Safety Board on Monday released evidence gathered in its investigation of the crash that killed eight people and injured 200 others last May.

Among the documents are transcripts of two interviews investigators had with the engineer, Brandon Bostian. The investigator wasn’t authorized to speak publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Investigators have said previously that Bostian hit his head in the crash and says he doesn’t recall what happened.
