A spokeswoman for Los Angeles' commuter rail, Metrolink, has reportedly stepped down after issuing comments that the engineer of the train that crashed into a freight car last Friday, killing 25, failed to stop for a red light. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), which has taken over the investigation, told the Metrolink Board that the comments were "premature" and ordered it to withhold further comments.

The Wall Street Journal reported that the spokeswoman said the statement "was and is accurate."
