Officials said investigation crews successfully extracted a second black box from last week's deadly crash. It had been trapped inside the commuter train from the New Jersey Transit train wreck. In addition to the recorder found in the front car, investigators also recovered front-facing video and the personal belongings of the train's operator. According to National Transportation Safety Board investigator-in-charge Jim Southworth, it included his cellphone. He declined to comment on a report that said federal investigators estimated the train was traveling between 20 and 30 mph when the crash occurred at the height of the Thursday morning rush-hour.
