Zoo Train Derailment Update

New information has been released from the June 1 Louisville Zoo train derailment that left more than 20 people injured. Apparently the accident happened on the driver’s first day. The 18 year-old operator of the train had just begun driving the ride by herself.

The investigation to determine what caused the train to derail continues.

This accident is not the first time a train has overturned at the Louisville Zoo. Another accident happened during Halloween festivities in October 2007, when the front axle broke on one of the rail cars.
