Train Full Of F-150’s Derails
At the beginning of August, Ford had more than 60,000 incomplete cars and trucks sitting around collecting dust thanks to the global semiconductor chip shortage. A recent train derailment didn’t help matters. The 30-plus car derailment, which occurred in northeast Missouri on August 2, was reportedly laden with an unknown number of brand-new (fully finished) F-150’s, along with Transit vans.
It’s rumored that the vehicles were being transported from Ford’s Kansas City assembly plant to dealerships. It’s still unclear as to how many vehicles were onboard during the train wreck, but luckily no one was injured when it left the track.
