Share this post

The National Transportation Safety Board cited factors such as speeding, not paying attention to signals and texting led to the January 12th, 2012, derailment in Porter County's Jackson Township that involved three trains and injured two people. The report says all three trains were going in the same direction on two tracks, when the second train, traveling at 40 miles per hour, switched tracks and slammed into the first train, causing that one's cars to derail, and a third train struck the derailed cars.
