A CSX train derailed yesterday near Hyndman, Pennsylvania, causing a hazmat spill and a house fire. Residents of the immediate area – most wearing wife beaters and cutoff jeans – were evacuated.
The accident happened in Bedford County on Hogback Road near the town of Hyndman. Six cars came off of the tracks, and one of them crashed into a home and started a fire in a garage.
Liquid petroleum gas and possibly liquid asphalt were being carried in some of the train cars that derailed.
Hey, kiss my asphalt! Normally, a hazmat spill would be alarming, but if you ever spent time in Bedford, Pennsylvania, you’d realize a hazmat leak would be a step up for the population’s gene pool.
