It has been concluded that multiple mistakes led to a CP Rail train and hi-rail track vehicle colliding near Chapleau.
A Transport Canada investigation shows that in March of 2016 the incident involves multiple errors from both rail traffic control and workers on the ground.
The investigation shows there were two employees in a high-rail vehicle as it reached the main track heading westbound.
Neither rail traffic control or the foreman on duty were able to notice the truck hitting the track and making matters worse the truck did not have detection-tracking equipment.
Therefore as the CP train came from the opposite direction towards the vehicle, the engineer of the train hit the emergency brakes in an attempt to stop which gave the workers time to evacuate before the train smashed into them.
Transport Canada says after their investigation there was no one injured in the incident.
