Wyoming man steals train following work dispute, reports

A rail worker in Wyoming might face felony charges for dissenting working terms by stealing a train and taking it on a thirteen mile joy ride before he crashed it into another locomotive, reported local media. Twenty two year old Derek Skyler Brux was being held in Campbell County Detention Center in Gillette in Wyoming, after his Thursday capture for ‘hijacking’ a train at North Antelope Rochelle.
According to reports, he now faces charges that includes felony destruction of property and reckless endangerment and was being held up in lieu of bond while the United States Marshals Service analyzes the incident, said a low enforcement official.
Derek Skyler Brux works for Rail Link company, and he stole the train after he became upset regarding his supervisor's reply to working conditions. Brux unhooked many train coaches and took off on main tracks at the site, reaching close to seventy miles per hour at times.
Local media report stated that many workers attempted to get the unhappy worker off the tracks, but they were not successful. Finally, it hit another train. He wanted to see what it was like to hit something, and he hit it.
As of now, there were no reports of any injuries. While the extent of damages are still being evaluated.
