The Charlotte Area Transit System said Tuesday that the basic supervisor for rail operations, Deltrin Harris, has actually been put on administrative leave.

No one was hurt in the derailment, however the North Carolina Department of Transportation said that CATS’ reaction to the mishap was uncertain, inadequate and not appropriate. And that other trains might be at danger of thwarting.
