Amtrak engineer involved in fatal 2015 train crash found not guilty on all charges

Brandon Bostian, 38, who was the engineer of Amtrak Train No. 188 which crashed in Philly in 2015, killing eight and injuring over 200 was acquitted of charges on Friday. The ruling ended a winding seven-year legal saga for the case. Charges against Bostian were dropped and reinstated several times. The matter was resolved civilly in 2016 when Amtrak agreed to pay $265 million to the victims and their famillies.
