There are serious questions tonight about a traffic accident eight years ago involving a prominent political candidate and what he says about the accident today, now that he’s running for the US Congress.
The CBS4 I-Team and CBS4′s news partners at the Miami Herald have spent the last six weeks looking into the incident involving Congressional candidate David Mauricio Rivera and discrepancies between his version of events and what an official Highway Patrol report says happened.
CBS4 I-Team reporter Stephen Stock has the details.
A CBS4 I-Team investigation into your safety now finds that a trainee and engineer in a southbound Amtrak train attempted to keep a near collision with a northbound Tri-Rail train quiet. The engineer admitted to authorities that he went as far as keeping his own conductor and other crew members in the dark about what happened.
That information is contained in statements given by train crew members to train officials obtained by the CBS4 I-Team.
There’s a growing crisis in the nation’s airports, but it has nothing to do with security. Instead, it’s your safety in the sky that’s at stake. The CBS4 I-Team spent the past four months digging through records many people don’t know exist and found there have been more close calls at local airports than passengers know.
