Train collision on the W&LE November 19, 2018

Sounds like it was a remote control yard job that broke apart and got away from its train while switching and rolled down into an Akron Barberton Cluster crew waiting at the remote zone board. It’s all yard limits there, The ABC crew was using W&LE power. I guess since they were switching without air they never knew it broke apart til it was too late.
Sounds Plausible ?

Side Note: I do not claim to know anything about said derailment. I just copy and pasted pictures and summary as to what happened.
