PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The lawyer for the engineer who was at the controls when an Amtrak train crashed in Philadelphia says his client has no recollection of the crash that killed at least seven people. Attorney Robert Goggin told ABC's "Good Morning America" that Brandon Bostian (BAH'-stee-un) remembers attempting to reduce speed as the train entered a curve before he was knocked out. The lawyer says Bostian told him the last thing he recalls is coming to, looking for his bag, retrieving his cellphone and calling 911 for help.
