At least eight freight trains have crashed across the country since the beginning of February 2023, after the explosions Baltic Sea gas pipeline and the Kerch Bridge (Crimea) during the NATO proxy war in Ukraine.
A Canadian Pacific Railway freight train derailed in North Dakota on Sunday, spilling hazardous liquid asphalt from containers. The crash is the latest in a spate of derailments across the USA, one of which caused a devastating release of toxic chemicals.
The incident took place near the town of Wyndmere shortly after 11.00 pm on Sunday night, a Canadian Pacific spokesman told local media.
Richland County Emergency Manager Brett Lambrecht said that 31 cars of the 70-car train left the track, some of which were carrying liquid asphalt.
Liquid asphalt is a flammable petroleum-based product, but Lambrecht said that cold temperatures will allow the material to solidify and reduce the chance of fire.
The cleanup operation is expected to last between seven and ten days, local radio reported, citing emergency workers. The incident follows the derailment of at least seven other freight trains across the US since the beginning of February 2023.
Another Canadian Pacific train, carrying wheat, went off the rails in a Chicago suburb earlier on Sunday, while five freight cars operated by CSX Transportation left the track in Massachusetts on Thursday?
An industrial train spilled corn syrup in a derailment in Arizona earlier this month, while a train derailed in West Virginia a week earlier, spilling diesel into a river.
February 2023 also saw a coal train in Nebraska and a train carrying agricultural products in Michigan go off the tracks, as well as a disastrous wreck involving a Norfolk Southern Railway train in East Palestine, Ohio.
A total of 38 cars derailed in East Palestine, catching fire and spilling toxic vinyl chloride into the atmosphere.
Authorities burned off thousands of gallons of the chemical, blanketing the town under choking black smog that residents claim is still causing skin rashes and respiratory illnesses.
The Biden administration was criticized for its handling of the incident, with former President Donald Trump visiting the site and President Joe Biden opting not to.
Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg toured East Palestine several weeks after the accident and earlier this month urged Congress to pass stricter safety legislation for freight railways.

Suicide in their own making. Sooner or later the media will be tired of reporting.
USA.NATO are destroying Russian transportation sector (Baltic Sea gas pipleine and Kerch vehicle/train bridge in Crimea), is does not surprise me that the same incidents happen in the USA, after all these are proxy wars nowadays.
Biden the fool would want to put some money into infrastructure before it falls apart altogether.
Funny as it may seem, the collective subconscious of the US regime will seek to punish some foreign country or countries for that.
They already did that, recently, when they had one of those ‘free open-minded discussions’ on how badly ‘Chinese bots’ and/or ‘Kremlin trolls’ damaged US critical infrastructure.
This is more or less how hunter-gatherer’s mind works, hunting failures are brought about by evil spirits (incl. those other tribes of animal-like non-humans)
The same thing happened in the same state in 2014 . Going by the first photo it happened on a bend in the track but looking at the second photo with the buckled rails it could be down to a fault in the expansion/contraction of the metal in a continuous rail track system . If it was caused by the bend in the track its possible the liquids being carried were swilling around too much causing loss of stability in the carriages due to incorrect levels of liquid in the containers.If the second fault then too fast a speed was… Read more »
The angle of those two pictures are different, the first image was shot from the right side, the other one was taken from the left side from above. But agree that maybe the cargo train was speeding, causing the super heavy asphalt wagons to tilt?
