Homes evacuated after train carrying hazardous materials derails in Pennsylvania

By Isabel Keane
July 17, 2023

Homes were being evacuated early Monday morning after a train carrying hazardous materials derailed outside of Philadelphia.

A 40-car CSX Norfolk Southern freight train derailed in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania just before 5 a.m. Monday, prompting emergency crews to respond to a suburban area of Whitemarsh Township.

Between 15 and 20 of the derailed cars were carrying hazardous materials, prompting a Level 2 hazmat response, Fox 29 reported.

Officials evacuated houses and businesses in the area of the derailment as a precaution early Monday morning, saying there was no known hazard to the public at this time.

Photos of the derailment show multiple cars toppled off the tracks, which appear to be bent.

  • I was a "conspiracy theorist". Now I'm just right.
Rails appear to be separated from the ties, out of gauge, and the ties separated from the roadbed. Hard to say what, aside from track conditions, caused the wreck.

Why insult that gap-toothed kid like that? :silly:  yogi555
If, as anti-Covid-vaxxers claim, https://www.poynter.org/fact-checking/2021/robert-f-kennedy-jr-said-the-covid-19-vaccine-is-the-deadliest-vaccine-ever-made-thats-not-true/ , https://gospelnewsnetwork.org/2021/11/23/covid-shots-are-the-deadliest-vaccines-in-medical-history/ , The Vaccine is deadly, where in the US have Pfizer and Moderna hidden the millions of bodies of those who died of "vaccine injury"? Is reality a Big Pharma Shill?

Millions now living should have died. Anti-Covid-Vaxxer ghouls hardest hit.

Looks to be SW of Philadelphia.

This will be interesting ... it was a CSX train (probably crew, too) running on Norfolk Southern track (trackage rights agreement).

Thus, if it was a failure of the track (perhaps a heat kink, which can happen at this time of year, or a broken rail), it might be blamed on NS. But if it was an in-train defect (like a bad roller bearing) that might have been picked up by inspection, then those same fingers could point at CSX.
