Amtrak and BNSF Railway Co. are taking a Kansas feed company to court, claiming one of its trucks caused a train to derail last month.
The cross-country train was headed from Los Angeles to Chicago when it went off the tracks in western Kansas and injured more than two dozen people.
In total, six cars derailed in the early morning hours of March 14. Weeks later, Amtrak and BNSF say damage to the tracks caused the train to crash.
