RENO, Nev. (AP) - Nevada Highway Patrol officials say they have nearly completed a report on a deadly Amtrak crash in Nevada and
intend to submit it to federal investigators in the next couple of weeks.

NHP Trooper Chuck Allen told The Associated Press on Friday that the 2-inch-thick report is "99.9 percent done," and will be sent to the National Transportation Safety Board after his superiors sign off on it.

A truck driver for John Davis Trucking of Battle Mountain slammed into the California-bound Amtrak passenger train on June 24 about 70 miles east of Reno, killing the driver and five people on the train.

Among other things, Allen says the report is based on witness statements, a vehicle inspection and a review of the company's maintenance, employee and driving records.
