A train engineer attempted to ram the USNS Mercy hospital ship.

Los Angeles, CA - A train engineer has been arrested for derailing a train at high speeds while trying to ram the USNS Mercy hospital ship.

The engineer ran the Pacific Harbor Line train through the end of the track, ramming barriers, and the train came to rest 250 yards from the ship on Tuesday, according to NBC News.

The engineer, 44-year-old Eduardo Moreno, stated that he believed that the ship was suspicious and "the ship is not what they say it is for," according to KABC.

Nobody was injured in the attack.

Upon being contacted after the crash, Moreno told a California Highway Patrol officer, "You only get this chance once. The whole world is watching. I had to. People don't know what's going on here. Now they will."

He later told the Los Angeles Port Police that he believed the ship was being used as part of a government takeover.

The engineer is currently facing a charge for train wrecking, and if convicted he could be sentenced to 20 years in federal prison.

The incident was captured on video from the train's cab, according to the Department of Justice.

The USNS Mercy is currently serving as a referral hospital for non-Coronavirus cases, which will allow the local hospitals to focus on the COVID-19 pandemic.

The ship is staffed by U.S. Navy medical personnel.

According to his Facebook profile, Moreno is a San Pedro native and graduated from San Pedro Senior High School. Moreno lives in San Pedro with his wife and their two children, his social media profile shows.

In the aftermath of the train crash and Eddie Moreno’s arrest, his wife started a GoFundMe to ask for help for his family.

Good luck with that.

Does the Pacific Harbor Line have any kind of a screening process for the competency of their employees??? Or were they just shocked that someone in Los Angeles wanted to work?

"Any attack on a US Navy Hospital Ship is a War Crime" He should be charged with THAT along with Train Wrecking.
Prison sentence to be served a Levinwort "at hard labor".
GoFundMe should be made aware of the misuse of their platform by his wife and the campaign should be terminated.
So sad to see him wearing Dodger items.
Get him out of here. Now.
Thank you CHP. Glad to see a South Los Angeles area office trooper was there to witness and hook the criminal.
