Workplace Injuries: Railroad Accidents
In October 2007 in Painesville, a Buffalo, New York-bound CSX freight train from Cleveland carrying grain, glycerin, alcohol and butane, among other cargo, derailed and exploded. The blast shot flames 30 feet into the air and forced a mass evacuation of the area. Thankfully no one was injured, but the fallout affected more than 1,000 households that had been ordered to evacuate. What if workers had been near the blast? What if you or a loved one had been one of them?
