On your way to work you get a phone call from the office. A train bound for New York derailed at a sharp bend in northern Philadelphia. There appears to be minimal damage amounting to less than $10,000. The conductor was transported to the hospital mentioning that he banged his head in the crash. Over the phone, the conductor admits to being “distracted” by the radio and that he exceeded the recommended speed of 50 miles per hour for the curve, taking it at around 100 miles per hour. Does the conductor need to be tested?

If so, should it be a reasonable suspicion or a post accident test?

If not, what if he died eleven hours after the accident?

Who else would you need to test?
