Authorities hoping to determine what caused a New Jersey Transit train to crash in Hoboken received bad news Sunday.

The black box that was recovered was not working at the time of the accident, the New York Daily News reports. 

The black box, which was recovered from the rear of the train, recorded no information. It was built in 1995.

The engineer of the train told the National Transportation Safety Board that he doesn’t remember the fatal crash, but said the train was traveling 10 mph as it entered the station.

Another recorder was located at the front end of the train, but it has not been found.

“Right now it is very dangerous to get in there,” NTSB vice chair Bella Dinh-Zarr said. “We’re hopeful that that will have information, that it will be functioning.”

The Thursday morning crash killed one person and injured more than 100 people.
