2 NS Crew Members Hurt in Collision

A Norfolk Southern engineer and conductor were taken to a hospital for treatment on Tuesday morning after their train struck a truck in southwestern Pennsylvania that was carrying hydrochloric acid.

The accident occurred in Centerville in Washington County after the truck pulled into the path of the train at a grade crossing.

The train had three locomotives and 102 empty coal hoppers. No other injuries were reported and 15 nearby homes were evacuated as a precaution. Hazmat teams were reported to be on the scene.

    Residents from this area have been asking that flashing lights, gates or warnings alarms be put up at this crossing for years. There have been numerous accidents and how many near misses at this crossing, the difference this time was that it was a hazardous material. Is the railroad waiting for someone to die before they put something in place other than crossbucks. The crossing is dangerous and difficult to see trains coming, conductors do not always sound a warning horn upon approaching.
