Engineer pleading for crashing train to ‘expose’ COVID conspiracy

LOS ANGELES (AP) – A train engineer who deliberately derailed outside the Mercy Hospital in Los Angeles Harbor pleaded guilty to the attack on Thursday.

Eduardo Moreno, 45, who worked at the Port of Los Angeles, admitted in his plea agreement that on March 31, 2020, he rode a locomotive at full speed from the end of the rails near where the USNS Mercy was docked, because he believed it. was part of a sinister conspiracy, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said in a statement.

The federal complaint details the statements he made to the California Highway Patrol officer who first appeared on the scene: “You only get one chance. The whole world is watching. … I’m going to reveal this to the world. “

He made similar comments to the LAPD, saying the ship was not “what it is said to be for.” He did not go into the details of his theory, but said that “people need to know” the truth about the COVID-19 pandemic.

He also said that he really wanted to see the video from the camera installed on the locomotive. A view of him through the windshield showed that he was holding a burning rocket in one hand and turning off the camera with the other as the train raced towards the end of the rails.

He knocked through concrete, steel and metal fences, slipped through a parking lot, and stopped about 250 yards from Mercy, officials said.

No one was hurt, but the crash caused nearly $ 700,000 in damage. The train also spilled fuel, which required a cleanup of hazardous materials.

Prosecutors said Moreno said he acted alone and did not plan the crash in advance.

He said that the idea came to him when he was getting ready to move the last carriages of his working day at about 1:00 pm: “Sometimes you can just click a little and it was damn exciting, damn it. … I just went for it, I had one chance. “

Moreno could face up to 20 years in prison when he is sentenced in March. However, prosecutors said they would seek 6.5 years in prison and $ 700,000 in restitution for the Pacific Harbor Line railroad company.

The 1,000-bed Mercy, based at the San Diego Naval Base, was docked at the Port of Los Angeles in March 2020 to receive non-coronavirus patients so that local hospitals are not overwhelmed.

However, the initial rise in hospital admissions was not as severe as expected. Before the flight in mid-May, the crew of the “Mercy” provided medical assistance to about 80 people.
