The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will be investigating Norfolk Southern’s safety practices after several train derailments in Ohio. The latest derailment occurred just days ago, caught on dashcam video by a motorist. The train was transporting hazardous materials, and cleanup efforts are still ongoing in the area.
The NTSB’s investigation will likely focus on any potential safety violations or lapses in protocol that may have contributed to the recent accidents. Norfolk Southern has issued a statement pledging their full cooperation with the investigation and their ongoing commitment to safety.
This news comes as residents in the affected areas are expressing growing concern about the frequency of these incidents and the potential dangers they pose to the community. Many are demanding answers and assurances that steps will be taken to prevent future derailments.
The NTSB will be returning to the scene of the most recent derailment to gather further evidence and begin their investigation. As they delve deeper into the matter, more information is expected to surface about what may have caused these accidents and what steps can be taken to prevent them from happening again in the future.
