ROSEDALE, Md. — Federal investigators have finished work at the railroad crossing of last month’s train derailment and are still trying to arrange an interview with the driver whose truck was hit by the CSX train.

The National Transportation Safety Board said Wednesday that investigators are still interviewing witnesses to the May 28 derailment that led to explosions and fires that caused an untold amount of damage to nearby buildings in Rosedale.

The truck driver, John J. Alban Jr., was released from the hospital on Sunday. The NTSB says investigators are still trying to arrange to interview him.

Officials have finished the truck inspection and removed mechanical components for further testing and analysis.

Investigators are expected to finish the on-scene part of the investigation by Friday.
