Amtrak Amtrak 188 Crash Brandon Bostian National Transportation Safety Board

‘No memory of crash’

14 May, 2015

Bostian’s lawyer says¬†his client has no memory of the crash, and that he¬†suffered a concussion, leg injuries and a cut in his head that needed 14 staples to close. He has not yet talked with the NTSB.

He remembers driving the train, he remembers going to that area generally, has absolutely no recollection of the incident or anything unusual.


We’ve not interviewed the engineer, but I want to point out that for somebody who’s been through a traumatic event, this is not at all unusual for human behavior to have the mind blank out things like that, at least for the short term.
