New details emerge in Nevada Amtrak accident
RENO, Nev. (KGO) -- New details are emerging about the fiery crash involving a big rig truck and an Amtrak train in the Nevada desert. It comes from a lawsuit filed by a second train attendant.
Lana Anderson said she was trying to lead passengers from the burning wreckage, but, their escape route was blocked by a locked baggage car door. Anderson says she and other survivors had to double back past bodies in the smoldering train car and jump down about 15 feet from a window to the rocky rail bed below.
The June 24 accident killed six people. Anderson's attorney is trying to determine whether the doors on the baggage car should have been locked.
