The FBI has found no indication of terrorism in the derailment of an Amtrak train outside Philadelphia that left six people dead and at least 60 injured.

FBI agents made the determination after examining the crash scene just north of Philadelphia’s 30 Street Station.

National Transportation and Safety Board inspectors are hunting for the cause of the crash. Multiple reports indicate investigators are reviewing the speed of the train as it approached a sharp curve.

The Northeast regional train with 240 aboard departed Washington’s Union Station en route to New York’s Penn Station Tuesday evening.

The derailment has wreaked havoc on the rails throughout the Northeast.

Amtrak trains will run between Washington and Philadelphia, Harrisburg and Philadelphia, and New York and Boston.

There will be no Amtrak service between New York and Philadelphia. New Jersey Transit will honor Amtrak tickets between New York City and Trenton.
