Troubleshooter investigates zoo trains sold without emergency brakes | News
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The fallout continues from the train accident at the Louisville Zoo that injured 22 people in 2009.
The WAVE 3 Troubleshooter has learned that Louisville Metro Government sold off two other zoo trains not involved in the accident for use across the country.
The problem: the trains don't have emergency brakes, which if used properly, could prevent a derailment like the one at the Louisville Zoo two-and-a-half years ago.
Tonight at 6:00, WAVE 3 Troubleshooter Eric Flack investigates the history and safety of these older trains and uncovers how they'll be used by the companies that bought them.
