Video: Union Pacific Train Derails Near Site Of Recent Thefts And Locals Seems To Reveal The Real Reason For The “Accident”

At least 17 cargo trains derailed near Lincoln Heights. The crew members onboard the train were not injured.

The train derailed in an area where thousands of boxes are left by cargo thieves.

On Sunday, Union Pacific spokesperson Kristen South confirmed that the investigation remains ongoing while crews clean up the tracks.

“Crews continue to work around the clock, clearing the tracks and working to reopen them. We do not have an estimated time for reopening, and the cause remains under investigation,” South said in an email.

As the investigation into the crash is ongoing locals allege that the real reason for the accident is the criminals who according to them are mostly illegals that are attacking the trains in the last few months.

People say that they see obstacles on the railroad every day and that this time the looters even managed to derail the cargo train in order to steal more.

As of Sunday afternoon, a Union Pacific official relayed that there was no estimated time for the completion of cleanup, as crews continued to work towards clearing the tracks.

A Union Pacific official told CBS that 17 cars derailed, and multiple containers were impacted in the incident, which is located at LATC rail yard, the same spot where reports of vandalism and theft have made headlines over recent days on social media but were widely ignored by the mainstream media!

As we previously reported a video showing multiple packages reportedly looted from Los Angeles trains has gone viral with over 2 million views.

CBS 2 photojournalist John Schreiber shared on Thursday showing what he discovered at the Lincoln Heights train tracks.

He captioned the video: “Keep hearing of train burglaries in LA on the scanner so went to Lincoln Heights to see it all.

Video below:

This opened package from REI destined for Bainbridge Island, WA was taken off a train. Typing in the UPS tracking number and it obviously lists it as “delayed.” We found lots of opened packages bound for the Northwest along this section of tracks – Schreiber tweeted.

Responsibility for policing the railroad right of way falls on Union Pacific Police… not local agencies like LAPD. We did see Union Pacific police chasing two people today off the tracks and keeping an eye on things.

The Daily Sneed reported about robberies in the area back in November last year but not one agency decided to protect the trains!

The wild west is back but it seems that we have some new guys in town and they aren’t cowboys!

A few well placed snipers around the train tracks would easily prevent these thefts.

This would be a legitimate use of the National Guard, to stop train robberies and looting.
If it isn’t stopped, the trains will stop running to LA, or there will be some other train yard set up and cargos diverted to trucks, however trucking is already under severe stress with mandates hitting trucking companies.
The Biden administration isn’t dealing with the supply train issues when massive train robberies are being carried out, and apparently when people are apprehended, the DA office downgrades to misdemeanor trespassing and perpetrators are out the next day.
likely, some people robbing trains are undocumented, but regardless of who it is, they are getting away with it.
