NTSB To Hold Hearing on CSX Carey Collision

The National Transportation Safety Board will make its final determination on Sept. 15 of the likely cause of a 2019 collision between two CSX trains near Carey, Ohio.

The Board will conduct a virtual hearing at 9:30 a.m. on that day that will be webcast.

No members of the public, STB staff or members will be gathered in one location for the proceeding.

The crash occurred on Aug. 12, 2019, and caused both trains to derail.

The lead locomotive and four cars of a westbound train turned onto their sides while 21 cars of an eastbound train derailed.

The crew members involved suffered minor injuries and damage from the wreck was an estimated $4.9 million.

During the meeting, the Board will vote on the findings, probable cause and recommendations as well as any changes to the draft final report.
