The engineer of the passenger train that derailed in Philadelphia in May 2015, killing eight people, has sued Amtrak, claiming it failed to provide a safe work environment.

The train was traveling 106 miles per hour when it rounded a curve with a speed limit of 50 miles per hour.

The engineer’s lawsuit claims the train was hit by thrown rocks, which caused the engineer to “become disoriented and or unconscious,” contributing to the derailment and the engineer’s “serious, permanent and painful personal injuries.”
