Investigation underway into fatal CP Rail freight-train derailment in BC

The president and CEO of Canadian Pacific Railway says he is deeply saddened by the deaths of three crew members in his company’s freight-train derailment in southeastern B.C.

Keith Creel says the tragedy that killed an engineer, a conductor and a conductor-trainee will have a long-lasting effect on CP’s family of railroaders.
