    COMMON-SENSE, LOW-COST FIX FOR TRUCK-TRAIN CRASHES REJECTED (North Carolina)

    March 24, 2015 Raleigh, North Carolina USA

    Train and Truck Crash In North Carolina
    Train and Truck Crash In North Carolina

    America's railroads want five more years to stop train wrecks using a high-tech system costing more than $9 billion.

    But experts tell The Associated Press that it won't keep trains and trucks from crashing together unless both industries use a common-sense solution available right away: actually talking with each other before crossing into each other's territory.

    Plenty of fingers have been pointed since an Amtrak train slammed into a massive tractor-trailer in North Carolina this month, injuring 55 people.

    No one warned the railroad beforehand that a huge truckload could be in the way.

    But as it turns out, no one had to.

    "It is crazy that this doesn't get coordinated with the railroad, considering how difficult this operation can be and how long it takes to cross it," Rob Molloy, acting director of highway safety for the National Transportation Safety Board, told the AP on Tuesday.

    SMALL OIL SPILLS CAN ADD UP TO BIG COSTS (USA)

    March 20, 2015 Washington State USA

    They don’t always make headlines, but 95% of oil spills in the US are relatively small, less than the size of a tanker truck you see on the highway. One leading cause? Leaks, in old pipes and storage tanks. And those can still be costly to clean up.

    State Fish and Wildilfe Biologist Brian McDonald is careful not to raise his voice as he approaches a row of baby cribs in a warehouse in Pasco. Each one hold Mallard ducks: "They’re typically in pretty rough shape--they’re sick, they’re cold, they’re oiled, they’re hungry," he says.

    The ducks were hit by an oil spill in Sunnyside earlier this month. McDonald says oil coats the ducks’ feathers and breaks down their natural waterproofing, "So each time they go into the water, it’s like a scuba diver going in without a wetsuit.

    Though they don’t always make headlines, 95% of oil spills in the US are relatively small--less than the size of a tanker truck you might see on the highway…Washington State’s Department of Ecology responds to about 400 oil spills a year, nearly all of them a few thousand gallons or less.

    Jeff Lewis, who leads the Department’s spill clean-up in Central Washington, says "Early on, it’s usually a lot of detective work. In this case, it wasn’t intuitive where this thing came from.

    With spills to running water like the one in Sunnyside, "They had to find the most upstream pipe they could see that was producing oil, and start narrowing your search."

    HAZARDOUS MATERIALS TEAM CLEANS UP SPILL IN BRISTOL (Virginia)

    Unloading the damaged tanker

    February 25, 2015 Big Valley Virginia USA

    Emergency responders were first called to Big Valley Seeding, a company in the 6000 block of Gate City Highway, outside the city limits.

    Jack Tolbert, with the Virginia Department of Emergency Management, said a tanker trailer had been unhooked. It appears the landing gear broke, he said, and punctured the front compartment of the trailer, spilling diesel fuel onto the ground.

    Washington County Fire and Rescue, Goodson-Kinderhook Fire Department and the hazardous materials team from the Bristol Virginia Fire Department responded. They blocked the leak, which Tolbert said spilled about 100 gallons of fuel, and cleaned up the diesel. The crew used booms and absorbent pads.

    A creek that flows under a nearby building was likely not affected by the spill, Tolbert said. Although not all of the fuel spilled from the tanker, Tolbert said they had to off-load it as a safety precaution. The fuel was transferred to another tanker.

    OUT-OF-CONTROL OIL TANKER STOPS JUST SHORT OF CRASHING INTO MELBOURNE PIZZA SHOP (Victoria)

    Tanker and Pizza shop

    An out-of-control oil tanker has stopped less than a metre from the front of a pizza shop in Melbourne's inner-north after the driver reportedly had a seizure.

    The truck failed to stop at a T-intersection about 2:30pm and came to rest in front of the store on High Street in Northcote.

    Store owner Sean Keenan said he rushed to the truck's cabin to help the driver who appeared to be having a seizure.

    "He was stiff with his seizure and the froth was flying out of him," he said.

    "It was probably the first time in my life I thought I should know more first aid than I do."

    The truck driver was taken to hospital in a stable condition.

    An Oil tanker carrying 40,000 litres of oil overturned at Gujranwala Road on Monday in Hafizabad, PakistanTribe received televised media reports.

    The overturning of oil tanker caused the leakage of oil which imposed a threat for security as any mistake of citizens may trigger the fire to oil.

    Authorities allowed people to collect oil for their domestic use however rescue sources also started mixing water in the oil to avoid any chance of accident.

    Rescue teams also advised the shop keepers to close the market as it was a safety measure taken by rescue team

    KNUST STUDENTS INVOLVED IN HORRIFYING ACCIDENT (Ghana)

    Bus after crash with tanker

    Apparently the student were returning from a field trip to Accra when the driver of one of the three buses conveying the students thought it prudent to overtake a petrol oil tanker ahead of them.

    March 8, 2015 Ghana

    Reports on UGFile, have it that students of the KNUST Engineering Dept. were involved in a horrible accident on the Accra-Kumasi road.

    Apparently the student were returning from a field trip to Accra when the driver of one of the three buses conveying the students, thought it prudent to overtake a petrol oil tanker ahead of them. After several manoeuvres, the driver, failing in his attempt to overtake the tanker decided to retreat and retire behind the tanker.

    However, the driver of the petrol tanker had noticed the former's attempt to overtake him and had considerably slowed down to facilitate this, this resulted in a collision which sent the students shooting forward and ramming into seats and each other.

    ILLINOIS OIL TRAIN DERAILMENT INVOLVED SAFER TANK CARS (USA)

    Smoke rising from rail cars
    Smoke rising from rail cars

    March 5, 2015 Galena, Illinois USA

    The rail cars that split open and burst into flames during a western Illinois oil train derailment this week had been retrofitted with protective shields to meet a higher safety standard than federal law requires, according to railroad officials.

    The fire continued to burn Friday, a day after the derailment in a rural area south of the city of Galena. No injuries were reported, but the accident was the latest in a series of failures for the safer tank-car model that has led some people calling for even tougher requirements.

    "It certainly begs that question when ... those standards failed to prevent leakage and explosions that threaten human safety and environmental contamination," said Steve Barg, director of the Jo Daviess Conservation Foundation, which owns a nature preserve several hundred yards from the derailment site.

    BNSF Railway said the train's tank cars were a newer model known as the 1232. It was designed during safety upgrades voluntarily adopted by the industry four years ago in hopes of keeping cars from rupturing during derailments.

    But 1232 standard cars have split open in three other accidents in the past year, including one in West Virginia last month. That train was carrying 3 million gallons of North Dakota crude when it derailed, shooting fireballs into the sky, leaking oil into a waterway and burning down a house. The home's owner was treated for smoke inhalation, but no one else was injured.

    In Thursday's accident in Illinois, 21 of the train's 105 cars derailed in an area where the Galena River meets the Mississippi. BNSF Railway said a resulting fire spread to five rail cars. Firefighters could only access the derailment site by a bike path, said Galena Assistant Fire Chief Bob Conley.

    The billowing black smoke of a tanker explosion on I-94 in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn about 11 a.m. Wednesday could be spotted from greater than 15 miles away.

    It took more than 1 1/2 hours to extinguish and involved at least two other vehicles. Fortunately, officials said, there were no fatalities.

    "We have located all of the people, we have taken one to the hospital and everyone else had minor bumps and bruises," Deaborn Fire Chief Joseph Murray told WXYZ, Channel 7 News during an interview live from the scene.

    Michigan Department of Transportation spokeswoman Diane Cross said the tanker was hauling 13,000 gallons of diesel fuel and gasoline, a portion of which went down sewer drains and caused a subterranean fire.

    A tanker truck is "no longer hanging over Hamilton Boulevard" after a crash Friday morning on Interstate 78 in South Whitehall Township, according to emergency radio reports.

    Pennsylvania State police at Fogelsville said no one was injured in the crash but couldn't immediately provide more details.

    A heavy duty tow truck about 9:30 a.m. pulled the truck back onto the shoulder of Interstate 78 as that highway passes about Hamilton Boulevard, which is Route 222, according to a Pennsylvania Department of Transportation traffic camera.

    The truck hit a pole during the crash, emergency dispatches say, but it wasn't immediately clear if the pole was already down from a previous accident.

    REDFIELD MAN INJURED IN SEMI-TRUCK ROLLOVER EAST OF PIERRE; NO DIESEL SPILLED FROM TANKER (South Dakota)

    March 18, 2015 Pierre South Dakota USA

    Redfield man was seriously injured when he steered a semi-truck tractor hauling a tank of diesel fuel onto the soft shoulder of a gravel road to avoid a Hughes County water truck and the rig rolled into the ditch east of Pierre Wednesday morning.

    The driver, Theodore Kimball, 64, was hospitalized with serious but not life-threatening injuries, said Tony Mangan, spokesman for the State Department of Public Safety.

    None of the thousands of gallons of diesel fuel spilled, Mangan said.

    It happened at 9:42 a.m. Wednesday as Kimball was driving the 1990 International truck south on 318th Avenue, a county road about 26 miles east of Pierre, at a spot about three miles north of state Highway 34.

    As Kimball approached an area where road repair had been taking place in a quarter-mile-long swale where 212th Street West intersects the avenue, he slowed to avoid a northbound water truck which was moving slowly, wetting the gravel, Mangan said.

    BURNING TANKER DISRUPTS TRAFFIC ON EXPRESSWAY (India)

    March 1, 2015 Adodara India

    Traffic on Vadodara-Ahmedabad express highway came to a standstill on Friday afternoon after a tanker carrying highly flammable substance caught fire. The incident occurred at 2 pm when the vehicle was near Valipura village in Anand.

    The tanker belonging to Indian Oil Corporation Ltd (IOCL) was ferrying highly inflammable liquid. The tank had a capacity to store 20,000 litre of liquid.

    The fire that began from the engine in the front gradually spread to the tank portion.

    The driver sensed the smoke and got out of the vehicle before it was charred. He escaped with minor burn injuries on his leg. But the incident disrupted traffic for nearly an hour on the expressway. Long queues of vehicles were on the road that move towards Ahmedabad. Eye-witnesses said an ambulance was also caught in the traffic jam.
