Thursday/ Amtrak train derailment

I made it in from San Francisco, and I’m following the reporting of the Amtrak train derailment in Philadelphia (8 fatalities; some 200 others injured) with special interest, since my trip to Portland on the train is so recent.   

Check out the diagrams from the New York Times here.  Not yet known : why was the train barreling around a sharp curve in the track at twice the speed limit?
