Fiery Freight Train Accident in Indiana
A CSX freight train was believed to have struck the back of a second train causing a derailment and fiery train accident in northwest Indiana on January 6, 2012. A third freight train passing by then collided with those trains, sending cars everywhere, including into nearby fields.
One of the trains in the collision was believed to have been carrying ethanol, a hazardous material, as well as other flammable materials. As a precaution, nearby residents were evacuated and roads in the area were closed as Porter Country emergency crews worked to extinguish the fires from the fiery train derailment.
Two CSX crew members suffered non-life threatening injuries due to the Indiana train accident and were taken to Porter County Hospital.
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is leading the investigation into the cause of the Indiana train collision.
