Mr. Hedlund discusses Metrolink’s liability in this case as well as Positive Train Control systems and other technology that would have prevented tragedies like this one from happening. He also stated in his interview with KTLA Ch. 5 that currently there is no audible signal that sounds when an engineer passes a red light, unlike his own experience as a mechanical engineer where every critical system had an audible alarm.
