Norfolk Southern train derails in Ohio, second within a week
A Norfolk Southern train derailed in Ohio on Thursday, marking the second derailment within a week for the railway company. The incident occurred in Springfield, Ohio, and fortunately, no hazardous materials were aboard the train. The railway company assured the public that there were no injuries.
This comes after a similar derailment took place in Ohio earlier this week. The two incidents have raised concerns about the safety of transportation methods in the area.
In response to the incidents, the railway company has launched an investigation to determine the cause of the derailments. Residents in the affected areas are looking for answers as they fear for their safety.
Interestingly, the derailment in Springfield occurred close to the anniversary of a previous derailment in the Miami Valley, which occurred in 2019. The incident was a significant one that caused a considerable amount of damage.
Residents in the area are calling for more safety measures to be put in place to avoid similar incidents in the future. It remains to be seen what steps the railway company will take to address their concerns.
