Conductor Deliberately Ran Train Off Tracks In Attempt To Crash The USNS Mercy Because It’s Part Of a ‘Liberal Conspiracy’

A train conductor deliberately ran a train off the tracks at high speed near the Port of Los Angeles in an attempt to crash into the USNS Mercy hospital ship because he believed it was there as part of a “liberal conspiracy,” federal prosecutors say.

Investigators allege train engineer Eduardo Moreno, 44, of San Pedro intended to hit the ship, saying he thought it was “suspicious” and did not believe “the ship is what they say it’s for.'”

The train crashed into a concrete barrier at the end of the track, smashed through a steel barrier and a chain-link fence, slid through one parking lot and then a second lot filled with gravel and hit a second chain-link fence. It came to rest after passing under a ramp leading to the Vincent Thomas Bridge, 827 ft from the ship. The train remained in that position Wednesday.

No one was injured in the derailment, but the train leaked fuel that required a hazmat response.

Moreno is reportedly a Q-Anon fan and a fervent Trump supporter.
