CSX is suing a garbage truck driver and his company for negligence in the explosive derailment of a freight train near Baltimore.

CSX Transportation Inc. of Jacksonville, Fla., filed the complaint Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Baltimore.

It alleges that John Alban, Jr. caused the derailment May 28 by failing to stop at a railroad crossing in Rosedale. The complaint says Alban and his company, Alban Waste LLC, were familiar with the crossing because the business is located near the tracks.

Court documents list Suitland attorney John Costello as Alban's lawyer. Costello said Thursday he hasn't been hired to represent either defendant and declined to comment on the case.

The National Transportation Safety Board said last week that stop signs at the crossing were faded and displaced.
