Baltimore freight train carrying chemicals Derailed and Explodes

Father called. Happened about .5 mile from the mine. Shattered windows in the loaders and buildings. Evacuating everyone from the facility in case of second explosion. Happened about 15 miles from my facility.

Quote:
A huge fire outside Baltimore, triggered by the collision of a freight train carrying chemicals and a trash truck, raged for 10 hours before being brought under control Tuesday.

A dark, thick plume of smoke could be seen for miles after two of 15 derailed cars from a CSX-owned train caught fire.

The blazing cars were carrying terephthalic acid and fluoroacetic acid, which said are not toxic inhalants.

However, residents were encouraged to avoid excessive exposure to the smoke.

The only person injured in the accident was the driver of the truck, John J. Alban, Jr., (50), who is in serious but stable condition.

Two CSX employees on the train were not injured.

The fire, which began at about 2 p.m. Tuesday, was finally declared to be under control at 11:41 p.m. Officers were maintaining a fire watch to monitor any flare-ups or hot spots.

The blast could be felt for miles, and many area residents said they initially thought they were experiencing an earthquake. Witnesses told that windows were blown out from nearby homes and businesses.

The crash occurred in a mostly industrial section of Rosedale along U.S. 40, in the 7500 block of Lake Drive.

The train was moving southbound when it collided with a waste-hauling truck. The train continued moving for several hundred feet before 15 cars derailed. An explosion quickly followed, sending a huge cloud of black smoke into the air.

Alban is a retired firefighter with the Baltimore County Fire Department, as well as a volunteer at the Hyde Park Volunteer Fire Co.

A National Transportation Safety Board team will investigate the derailment.

You can hear tires screeching in all 3 vids at the same time they must have been all close to eachother when it happened
