Ohio’s Toxic Train Wreck


On February 3rd, 2023, there was a recent train wreck in Ohio, causing the water to be undrinkable. This was completely preventable. There are investigators that are beginning to examine procedures. Multiple residents are frustrated and getting sick from the toxins in the air, water, and soil. There was also plastic pallets that were heated by a hot axle found in one of the train’s cars that sparked an initial fire. The temperature started to get hotter and when the train passed by two defect detectors, they did not go off and trigger the audible alarm since the heat was not met. The third detector eventually went off, but at that moment it was too late. Investigators are going to continue the investigation leading to the wheelset.
