A National Transportation Safety Board spokesman says investigators will spend several days at the Virginia site of crash between a truck and a train that was carrying dozens of Republican congressmen.

Speaking at a news conference Wednesday night, NTSB spokesman Earl Weener said he doesn't expect the agency to release a probable cause of the deadly crash for several months.

Responding to reports from nearby residents that crossing equipment had been malfunctioning, Weener said signal experts would be looking at the safety of the crossing.

The train taking House Republicans from Washington to a retreat in West Virginia collided with the garbage truck in Crozet, Virginia, on Wednesday morning. One person in the truck was killed and others were injured.
