Ricky Davis, 51, was charged this month with felony wanton endangerment for causing a risk to the lives of a CSX engineer and conductor.

Seventeen cars of the 48-car CSX train, which were carrying more than 200 new automobiles, derailed June 30 off Ky. 1020 (Coral Ridge Road) between East Blue Lick and West Blue Lick roads.
