USA rail crash engineer had been reported for using his mobile

The engineer responsible for the rail crash in Los Angeles last September had apparently been reported for using his mobile phone a couple of months earlier. A lawyer for the conductor, who survived the crash, said he'd previously complained to a supervisor about the engineer. 25 people were killed in the crash, which happened when a passenger failed to stop at a red light and hit a freight train. Although many are blaming irresponsible mobile phone use for the accident, investigators are also said to be querying the visibility and brightness of the red signal.
