    Megyn Kelly is ready to get back on TV. Page Six has exclusively learned that Kelly will officially start at NBC next month. “She will start in May, and her Sunday show will premiere in June,” a network insider told us. Kelly had been expected to start in July after her Fox contract expired, but she was just released from her Fox deal two weeks ago. She will join Kate Snow as part of NBC News’ Sunday night programming. NBC News vet and former “Dateline” executive producer David Corvo will executive produce Kelly’s Sunday show with another longtime NBC producer,...

    The engineer of the New Jersey Transit train that crashed into Hoboken Terminal on Thursday, killing one person and injuring more than 100 others during the busy morning commute, felt well rested and was unaware of any mechanical problems in the moments before the accident, federal investigators said on Sunday. At a news conference in Hoboken, officials from the National Transportation Safety Board said they had interviewed the engineer, Thomas Gallagher, as well as the train’s conductor, who was not identified, and still were no closer to determining the cause of the crash. It was the first fatal accident on...

    DEVELOPING: At least one person was killed and dozens more were hurt after a crowded train slammed into a busy station in Hoboken, N.J., during the Thursday morning commute, investigators and local media reported. The woman who died appeared to be standing on a nearby platform before the crash, a law enforcement source told Fox News, adding that the engineer was pulled from the train "semi-conscious" and rushed to a nearby hospital. People pulled concrete off bleeding victims and passengers kicked out the windows amid crying and screaming. At least 65 riders were injured, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said,...
  • Hoboken Crash: New Jersey Transit Train Didn't Have Positive Train Control

    09/29/2016 9:04:32 AM PDT · by bryan999 · 103 replies
    The commuter train that crashed into New Jersey Transit's Hoboken terminal during the Thursday morning rush was not equipped with the positive train control technology that could have prevented it from roaring off the rails. What's more, not a single New Jersey Transit employee has been trained how to use the PTC technology, according to the most recent U.S. Department of Transportation progress report, which is dated Sept. 13. The agency has a Dec. 31, 2018 deadline for putting this technology in place. The report states that "NJT has had a contractor on board for several years." The report also...

    This just coming over the wire. A New Jersey Transit train crashed into a wall after entering the station in Hoboken around 8:30 a.m. It is unclear from earliest reports whether the train jumped the track, but according to live televised coverage by New York City Fox affiliate WNYW the roof over the passenger waiting area collapsed, resulting in serious injuries. The exact number and nature of those injuries have yet to be reported. According to eyewitnesses, the train failed to slow down as it entered the station. One on-scene observer who witnessed the crash was WFAN anchor John Minko....

    A driver on a Ramadan fast had not eaten for 16 hours before his train was derailed, a report has found. The crash, near Paddington Station, affected services for days. A Rail Accident Investigation Branch (RAIB) report said it was "unable to determine" whether fasting and interruption to sleep was a factor in the crash. But the investigation recognised there was research showing fasting can affect people's concentration levels. The train, which was not carrying any passengers, was automatically derailed after passing a red signal at about 18:30 BST on 16 June.

    Judd Apatow (“Trainwreck”) defended his “Freaks and Geeks” collaborator Paul Feig on his “Ghostbusters” film, comparing the haters — who disagree with the all-female cast — to Donald Trump supporters. Apatow told Uproxx in an interview, “I would assume there’s a very large crossover of people who are doubtful Ghostbusters will be great and people excited about the Donald Trump candidacy. I would assume they are the exact same people.”
  • Ted Cruz's popularity has dropped sharply among GOP voters

    Sen. Ted Cruz's standing among Republican voters has dropped sharply in the last couple of weeks, with more of the party's supporters now having a negative impression of him than a positive one for the first time in this campaign year, new data from Gallup show. The decline comes at a crucial time for Cruz. Tuesday's primary in Indiana could be critical for his campaign as he tries to amass enough delegates to keep Donald Trump from gaining the majority needed to secure the Republican nomination. Recent polls have shown Cruz trailing Trump in the state. Nationwide, until recently at...

    The Hill ^ | Philip N. Diehl
    Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) has run a brilliant campaign, and if it were not for Donald Trump, he'd probably be on the verge of wrapping up the Republican nomination by now. The Texas firebrand knew long before others that the party's primary schedule and delegate allocation rules played to his advantage, not to an establishment candidate like former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. From his arrival in the Senate, Cruz has bent the political space-time continuum around himself by demonstrating GOP leaders' inability to govern effectively or deliver on their promises to conservatives.

    Authorities are trying to determine why multiple safety measures failed, allowing two trains to travel on the same single-line track and smash into each other in Bad Aibling in Bavaria on Tuesday morning. They are considering both possible technical errors and human failure. At the scene, 40 miles southeast of Munich, a huge crane was brought in Wednesday to start moving away the wreckage from the tracks - a job the German news agency dpa reported would take two days. About 100 emergency workers are helping with the removal. On the investigation front, the German transport ministry said both the...
