Sunday Marks Two Years Since PG&E Pipeline Explosion in San Bruno
This Sunday marks two years since a PG&E natural gas pipeline exploded in San Bruno, killing eight people and destroying 38 homes. Many residents have rebuilt, others have moved away, and 350 people have filed suit against PG&E, including plaintiff Bill Magoolaghan. He says he favors going to trial, but his fellow plaintiffs need to make their own decision.
"I think that people have to decide for themselves whether they're in for the long haul in going to trial and dealing with all that, Magoolaghan says. "PG&E says they lost their way. So we want to make sure that its not possible for them to lose their way again. Because what happen to us and what happen to our neighborhood and our neighbors should never happen to anybody else."
Magoolaghan has rebuilt his home and says his wife and two of their children remain in therapy.
The lawsuits have been consolidated and are scheduled to go to trial in January.
