Suspect Charged in Train-Bulldozer Accident in Illinois

July 8, 2009

Investigators believe they know how a bulldozer got onto railroad tracks in Collinsville, Ill., last year before being rammed by a train.

Prosecutors in Madison County have charged 24-year-old Nathan Bailey of Collinsville with criminal damage to property over $100,000 in connection with the January 2008 case.

Investigators say the crash near the city’s Glidden Park didn’t cause a derailment or any injuries, although the wreck seriously damaged the CSX locomotive and the bulldozer.

Authorities say the bulldozer belonged to the city and was stolen from a construction site.
