The legal processing of the railway accident with 18 injured in Wieselburg in October 2016 will continue on Monday at the St. Pölten Regional Court. A now 55-year-old shifter is accused of negligent public endangerment and negligent bodily harm, he is said to have committed a breach of care. The hearing was adjourned on October 15, 2018.
The accused worked as a shifter at Randegg (. He is said to be responsible for the fact that on October 19, 2016, a group of wagons – consisting of a crew wagon and four freight wagons – had broken away and covered the approximately 20-kilometer route to Wieselburg without being monitored. When the abandoned wagons collided with a regional train that was traveling from St. Pölten to Scheibbs, four people suffered severe and 14 minor injuries. The accused denied the allegations on the first day of the hearing.
