FBI suspects sabotage in CSX train derailment

(The Associated Press circulated the following article on August 1.)

TAMPA, Fla. -- The FBI says a CSX freight train flipped off the tracks after hitting a piece of railroad equipment deliberately left in its path.

A spokeswoman for the FBI said that they are conducting a criminal investigation, but no further details were immediately available.

No one was hurt when the CSX engine and three cars derailed Sunday evening.

About 200 gallons of diesel fuel spilled from the engine and a major Tampa road was closed all day Monday as workers cleaned up the mess.
