Probe of CP Rail crash in British Columbia examines 'over length' train
from CBC News
Canada's Transportation Safety Board has announced a full "Class 3" investigation into how two CP Rail freight trains crashed and derailed while one was trying to pass the other early Sunday high in the British Columbia mountains just east of the Rogers Pass. A CP Rail conductor on eastbound train 602 suffered a concussion around 2:25 a.m. PT when he was thrown from his seat, while the engineer at the controls escaped serious physical injury when their locomotive, hauling empty potash cars, slammed into the tail end of a parked westbound train.
