LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The Metrolink spokeswoman who announced that a deadly train crash in Los Angeles was caused by an engineer's mistake has resigned.
Spokeswoman Denise Tyrrell resigned Monday.
On Saturday, she made a swift announcement blaming the engineer driving a Metrolink commuter train for failing to stop at a red light and causing a head-on crash. Twenty-five people were killed Friday.
Tyrrell says she has quit because a Metrolink board statement called her announcement "premature."
The National Transportation Safety Board confirmed on Sunday that the engineer, who was killed in the crash, had failed to stop at the final red signal.
