CTA accepts Blue Line fire blame; fires five workers
It's the CTA's fault. And they accept blame.
And the CTA fired five workers in the wake of the Blue Line fire and derailment that injured 150 people in July.
It's also fun to read the CTA spin on this issue -- here:
"CTA officials said today that following an extensive internal investigation, five employees were terminated for rule violations that allowed track conditions to degrade and cause a derailment.... President Frank Kruesi outlined steps that have already been taken to speed up inspections and make repairs in the subway and longer term plans to improve the rail inspection process and increase preventive maintenance."
Well, I will at least give Frank credit for the firings. What do you think?
