The family of an eight-year-old girl is suing CP Rail for $15 million.
Khelyse Crowe-Kasule was playing near the tracks around Cumberland and Gage last April 5 when the train moved, crushing her right leg. Doctors amputated part of her leg, and she’s permanently disabled, said her lawyer, Darcy Merkur.

The lawsuit, filed in Hamilton court, names Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd. and the owners of a fence near the tracks.
