State law keeps police, media from seeing RTD report

9NEWS: RTD has been transparent about suspending service on part of its R Line in Aurora.

Several light rail cars derailed on Sept. 21 and full service has yet to resume.

RTD has not been transparent about the investigation into the crash. Not to the public or the city of Aurora.

It turns out the transportation agency is protected by a curious state law.

“My wife and I made the conscious choice to always live near transit services,” Aurora city councilman Juan Marcano said. “Right now, it’s not great with the R Line northbound being shut down past Florida [Avenue]. It has been for several months now and my wife, I and my constituents are livid about it.”
