Another Train Carrying Crude Oil Derails in Ontario

A train carrying crude oil derailed near Gogama, Ontario, causing havoc and closed roads. Social media show a fire and smoke billowing from the site.

The incident occurred early this morning and police closed a major highway as a result around 4:30 in the morning local time.

The derailment is the fourth derailment for CN Rail in Northern Ontario this year.

Just last week, a 16-car train derailment also occurred in the area.

Recent derailments have exposed inadequate safety standards and the company has been accused of cutting corners in safety.

Crude Oil Train Derails, Catches Fire in Illinois, Evacuation Announced
More important, however, it is yet another in a series of derailment which involved a train carrying crude oil in Canada and the US. Just a day before, a freight train carrying crude oil derailed in a rural area in the US state of Illinois, some cars caught fire and a voluntary evacuation was announced within one mile of the accident as a fire erupted and authorities battled the blaze.
