Freight Train Derails, Spills Chemicals In Paulsboro, NJ; Evacuations Ordered

CBS News – by Al Novack, Steve Beck

PAULSBORO, NJ (CBS) — Emergency crews are on the scene of a five-car freight train derailment in Paulsboro, New Jersey.

Officials say a freight train derailed over the Mantua Creek, leaking a chemical called vinyl chloride, which is considered toxic and highly flammable. Hazmat crews are currently on scene.

It appears the five cars derailed when a bridge they were traveling over collapsed. Some of the trains are currently submerged in the Mantua Creek.

Rescue units have been dispatched to the scene after numerous people complained of respiratory problems. A number of people in the immediate area have been evacuated.

The U.S. Coast Guard has also been notified because the chemical might be leaking into the Delaware River.

Parents of students at the Guardian Angels Regional School have been instructed to take their kids to the Gibbstown, New Jersey campus.

    I saw a different article on this, but it didn’t even have as much information as this one does.

    “It appears the five cars derailed when a bridge they were traveling over collapsed. Some of the trains are currently submerged in the Mantua Creek.”

    I’m assuming this means that bridges no longer receive regular inspections.

    Budget cuts, no doubt.

    It’s called deteriorating infrastructure. That happens when you have all of your tax dollars going to Israel and the MIC and not our own country.
