Another Norfolk Southern Train Derails in Ohio Ahead of Senate Testimony by CEO Alan Shaw

HeadlineMar 06, 2023

Here in the U.S., Norfolk Southern CEO Alan Shaw will testify before a Senate panel Thursday about last month’s train derailment and contamination of East Palestine, Ohio. This comes as another Norfolk Southern train derailed near Springfield, Ohio, on Saturday, prompting officials to issue a temporary shelter-in-place order. Officials said none of the 28 train cars involved in the crash contained hazardous materials, though other sections of the 212-car train did contain dangerous chemicals, including propane.
