A new report by the National Transportation Safety Board has revealed whether the engineer of an Amtrak train involved in a deadly crash was on his cell phone or not.

FOX News Radio's Tonya J. Powers reports:

The NTSB's report says Brandon Bostian wasn't texting, calling or using data in the moments before the crash.

It also says he hadn't accessed the train's WiFi system while he was working the day of the derailment, either.

Eight people were killed and more than 200 others were hurt when the train derailed in Philadelphia on May 12th.

But, the report still hasn't answered the question of why the train was going 106 miles an hour - twice the designated speed.
