Excerpt
Excerpt: About 12:37 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Saturday, June 20, 1998, 30 of the 148 cars making up eastbound CSX train Q316 derailed at Cox Landing, West Virginia. Of the derailed cars, three were loaded with hazardous material, and eight others contained hazardous material residue. Two of the loaded cars were damaged in the pileup and leaked a combined volume of about 21,500 gallons of formaldehyde solution. No one was injured during the derailment of the train; however, 15 persons reported minor injuries as a result of the release of formaldehyde. Total damages in the accident exceeded $2.6 million. The local emergency responders were effective in identifying the immediate hazards and initiating an immediate evacuation of nearby residents. Also, after some delay, responders called in chemical specialists to assess each tank car for leakage and potential risk. The Safety Board investigation did, however, identify a need for additional planning, training, and communication among the agencies responding to the accident.
