August 19, 2013 Brake Tampering on 2 of 3 Cars Causes Bethel Vermont Train Derailment Crash Bethell Vermont. Three grain cars had two of three cars brakes deliberately released, apparently an act of felony vandalism or sabotage. It caused the cars to run away, rolling past the end of a spur and derailing causing a crash with $30,000 in damage. In Canada, the Lac-Mégantic derailment destroyed the center of small town when oil cars ran away when their air brakes were released without explanation, and exploded when they derailed and burned. Terrorism was ruled out in that case.
