    Federal investigators say it'll be a few days before they have information from the data and video recorders pulled from a New Jersey commuter train that crashed last week.

    The National Transportation Safety Board said Wednesday that engineers at its Washington lab are working to extract data from the devices. The data recorder should contain speed and braking information.

    The Sept. 29 crash at Hoboken Terminal killed a woman and injured more than 100 other people.

    Officials say a data recorder from the rear of the New Jersey Transit train wasn't functioning.

    Federal investigators are also examining the train engineer's cellphone, which was in a backpack in the train's cab.

    Federal regulations require commuter trains to have working data recorders. The regulations require they be inspected every 92 days.
