we begin tonight with the latest on the ace train derailment. the last of the derailed cars has been put back on the tracks and towed away went last hour. ace train also resume service tomorrow morning. one seriously injured passenger is still in the hospital tonight. let's take a listen to emergency dispatchers as the scope of the derailment unfolded. >> partially in the creek, three passengers -- correction, nine passengers in the train currently. 's juliette goodrich ha e crash site all day >> the train derailed about 7:30 last night in niles canyon between sunol and pleasanton. kpix 5's juliette goodrich has been at the crash site and has the latest. >> reporter: veronica, a lot of progress has been made as you can see that that last train
6:01 pm
car has been actually righted and towed down the tracks. so now the tracks are clear. and they could be resuming freight train service this evening. the ace train will be back up and running tomorrow. but the big question tonight is, how will this be prevented from happening again? inch by inch, a crane hoisted the 250-ton passenger train up the canyon. you can see the damage of the impact. shattered glass and holes on top of the train. francisco castillo is with union pacific. but was there any concern about this hillside? was there any red flag in the past? >> there was no red flag which is why the train -- i mean, an hour before this incident a train went through with no problems. >> reporter: ace train 10 heading from san jose to stockton with 214 passengers slammed into the mud slide at 7:30 p.m. some passengers were soaking wet from the frigid waters of alameda creek while they waited for rescue. but everyone survived.
6:02 pm
>> this is a miracle in the canyon. >> reporter: congressman eric swalwell surveyed the damage. this is his district. >> i'm just concerned, you know, we have intense weather headed our way. it's a break in the storm right now. but i want to make sure that passengers on that train tomorrow are safe. >> reporter: you can see where the hillside gave way. the train slamming into the dirt and kept going before the front railcar went down the canyon and into the creek. we do know a mud slide caused a derailment but at this point we don't know whether the mud flowed on the tracks before the train got to that spot in the canyon or whether it actually struck the lead car as the train rolled past. this afternoon, crews cleared trees and debris around the mud slight area. i asked union pacific the question on most everyone's mind. >> what's being done make sure that this doesn't happen again, that the hillside is secure that we don't have more mud slides? >> we can only do so much as a railroad. so we have individuals inspecting the right of way to
6:03 pm
ensure that things are stable there and, you know, we inspect it twice a week. >> reporter: and we're back out here live now. you're looking at alameda creek. and take a look at how swift moving this water is. it was less than 24 hours ago that this train derailment happened and people were actually in the water waiting for emergency crews to get them out. quite a harrowing experience. as it stands right now, the track is clear. ace train will resume tomorrow. niles canyon, though, veronica, is still closed and likely will not open until about 4 a.m. tomorrow. that's the latest from here. back to you. >> all right, juliette goodrich live for us tonight i niles canyon, we appreciate it, thank you. joe vazquez, when you look at it the train didn't stand much chance against the mud. >> reporter: this mud slide had a tree and other debris inside of it. all that stuff gets under the wheels and one expert said it's a sure thing it will knock a
6:04 pm
train off the tracks. it can happen in a blink of an eye. this cell phone video from a few years ago in washington state shows you just how quickly a landslide can rip down the hillside and into a train knocking it off the tracks. >> it just came down. >> mud slides here in the canyon are a common occurrence. >> reporter: henry of the niles canyon railway operates trains on the other side of the canyon from last night's derailment. he says train operators are constantly checking these tracks for slide and other debris. but once it happens, especially when it's dark, there's nothing you can do. the debris will get under the wheels, lift them off the track and cause a derailment. >> it jumps off about over here, started to get pushed along by the rest of the train all that mass has to lose all its momentum. so it's pushing the rest of the car down, plowing down the trees. this was a slow motion
6:05 pm
accident. >> reporter: notice he said push. in the old days train locomotives, the engines, were at the front and only pulled loads but these days, commuter trains save time and money with what they call push/pull technology. instead of turning the train around, it can just move in reverse. now with the heavier locomotive in the back, some believe it's less safe that way. in oxnard in february 2015 a commute derailment raised the issue of push/pull trains since the lighters cars in front the heavier locomotive being harder to stop. after that crash metrolink decided to put one locomotive in front and another at the back as a safety precaution. that train last night was pushing its load, the locomotive at the back of the there's a lot of debate about whether this is an issue. i talked to someone who told me it probably wouldn't have made any difference in this case because the landslide gets under those wheels of the train, it's very likely that it will unhook from the track and then derail whether it's being
6:06 pm
pushed or pulled. joe vazquez, kpix 5. this is what it looked like when rescuers got to the scene. alameda county fire actually tweeted out this video. you see a firefighter here breaking a window trying to get people out of the car that landed in the creek. they said this was one unique rescue effort. >> in the wilderness and you don't really know what's going on. and here's this train on the side -- strange when you're standing next to them, they're massive and here it is on its side and you're wondering, how in the world did this happen? >> been in this job a long time and this is surreal. you don't see it every day or sometimes never in a career. >> shaken passengers were bused to the alameda county fairgrounds in pleasanton where they met one family members. >> very, very jarring ride. for a while we didn't know what was happening because it was dark and we couldn't see what was going on. >> slid for quite a while, wasn't sure if we were going to
6:07 pm

6:09 pm
