A Connex spokesperson says the managers were taken off /*Metrolink*/ service but was unsure what their future would be with the company.
The move comes after a /*National Transportation Board*/ hearing this week in Washington D.C. determined that engineer, /*Robert Sanchez*/, allowed unauthorized rides and also sent out a text message seconds before the Metrolink train collided head-on with a Union Pacific train.
Sanchez was technically a Connex employee.
Metrolink ordered the contractor to find new supervisors who would better enforce safety guidelines.
