The report does not show what caused two trains to collide, sending three people to the hospital with injuries.

The two-page report orders the City of Green Bay to provide appropriate training and maintain records properly. The city was also instructed to properly train staff to stay at their station, and secure the ride's sensor.

Green Bay has sent the cars in question to Philadelphia for inspection. Mayor Schmitt's Chief of Staff, Celestine Jeffreys, tells NBC26 there are no new updates on the progress of that inspection.
