Feds examine trucker's phone after Amtrak crash

June 28, 2011 (CHICAGO)

Lawrence Valli's phone will be looked at by federal authorities to determine if it was a distraction that could have led to the accident.

The inspection will indicate if a text message was in progress, or a call being made before the semi slammed into an Amtrak train from Chicago Friday.

The crash killed the driver and at least five people on the train.
