UK Investigators believe the Paddington Station train derailment was caused by the MUSLIM driver who passed a red signal before coming off the track and hitting a mast – resulting in the station’s closure and rail chaos across London.
UK Express(h/t EDLmedia) Investigators are now probing whether the accident occurred because the MUSLIM driver was undergoing a Ramadan fast and had not eaten in the 15 hours before the crash. The report adds fasting “can affect people’s concentration levels”.
Its official guidance on fasting states: “Fasting can have a range of effects on individuals including fatigue, dizziness, dehydration and headache, sleepiness and reduction in concentration which can result in safety concerns, especially when conducting safety critical jobs.”
The investigation report explains the MUSLIM driver “formed the impression in his mind” that a signal meant he could continue and “drove past it although it was showing two red lights, meaning ‘stop.’”
