Federal agency says improvements to unsafe tank cars can take years

The United States National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has reported that accident-prone tank cars that are used to transport crude oil and ethanol by rail could still go about their daily routes for another 15 years under federal rules that make it possible for companies to phase in upgrades to their decades-old fleets. Accidents involving older cars have happened in Montana, North Dakota, West Virginia, Canada, Oregon, and Illinois, with the biggest in Lac-Megantic, Quebec wherein 47 people lost their lives after a runaway oil train derailed in 2013.

Transportation Department Press Secretary Clark Pettig said that the new rules couldn’t move forward because the schedule to retrofit older cars was instituted by Congress in a transportation bill passed in 2015. A meeting had been planned in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, July 13 that would entail how government and industry officials plan to make the NTSB informed regarding progress on the issue.

In an interview with The Associated Press, NTSB member Robert Sumwalt there had already been 28 railroad accidents during the past 10 years, which equates to three accidents annually. To avoid further accidents, United States Senator Ronald Lee “Ron” Wyden (Democrat of Oregon) introduced a bill that seeks to provide tax credits to companies that would upgrade their cars during the next several years, noting, “Communities near train tracks, like Mosier, Oregon, must be confident that companies are using the safest tank cars possible.”

Metro-North train derailment in the Bronx kills four, injures 67

A Metro-North passenger train that was headed for Manhattan’s Grand Central Terminal on Sunday, December 1 suddenly derailed in the Bronx borough of New York City, causing seven of its eight train cars to come off the tracks. As a result of the derailment, four people died and 67 others were injured.

The train, which came from Poughkeepsie and had 150 passengers onboard, was just 10 miles north of its destination when the accident happened.

According to New York Fire Department Chief Edward Kilduff, three of the passengers who died were thrown from the train as it “came off the track and was twisting and turning.” One train car came to a full stop near the Harlem River. The cause of the train accident remains unknown, and results of investigations by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and the National Transportation Safety Board are pending.

The Metropolitan Transit Authority reported that this was the second time a train came off its tracks along that route. The first accident occurred in July this year and caused a great deal of damage to 1,500 feet of the track.

Our team at Hach & Rose, LLP, knows that many people in New York City and the surrounding areas are greatly affected by this tragedy, and send both our thoughts and condolences to anyone suffering in its aftermath.
