ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- Amtrak officials are watching out for rider's safety as a high speed rail between St. Louis and Chicago is in the works.

Officials say trains won't go at high speeds until new safety technology is installed.

That decision comes after a deadly train crash in Washington state last week.

Officials say "positive train control" technology, which could have prevented the crash, was not active that day.
