PHILADELPHIA, May 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, reports today that a deadly Amtrak train accident occurred in Philadelphia on Tuesday, May 12th, when the train derailed on a sharp curve traveling at the speed of 106 miles per hour. According to The NY Times, federal authorities said at least seven people were killed, and 200 others were injured; and the night after the incident, some passengers were still not accounted for. According to investigators, it's too early to determine if speed alone caused the crash, and other factors – including track conditions – will be examined. The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash which occurred on the Northeast Corridor.
