Passengers had to be evacuated from the train because of a fuel leak from the crash. No one was injured, but there were major delays on trains.

Pretty much describes it there... On top of that since the fuel tank was compromised on the leading unit it had to be cut out of the consist somewhere along the line. 822 was taking the train solo into Chicago. AKA Earning each dollar spent on it. ;)
