CALGARY — A police officer probing the death of three Canadian Pacific Railway crewmen killed in a runaway train crash in B.C. last February alleges he was denied access to key evidence and suspects a "coverup" by the railway. Mark Tataryn was one of three officers with CP Police Service assigned to investigate the derailment of CP Train 301. Tataryn began investigating potential criminal negligence by CP after the parked train suffered air brake failure in the mountains in –28 C temperatures and crashed at the historic Spiral Tunnels near Field, B.C. on Feb. 4, 2019. "I was ordered to stop investigating," Tataryn told CBC's The Fifth Estate, saying his superiors prevented him from obtaining key witness accounts. "I would say it was some type of coverup."
