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.

“She’s a resilient kid,” Merkur said. But “when it comes to the social aspects, it’s going to be a major uphill battle.”

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