Amtrak to be questioned today on Capitol Hill

Posted: Updated:
A congressional committee will question Amtrak after last month's deadly train derailment.

Amtrak's president will be at a hearing before a House Committee Tuesday.

Last month, a train from Washington to New York wrecked on a curve while traveling more than 100 miles per hour. The train and all seven cars went off the tracks.

An investigation continues as to why the train was traveling at such a high speed.
