Hundreds evacuated after freight train derailment, fire in western Pennsylvania

No injuries were reported after the crash in Hyndman, about 100 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, but CSX warned customers of service disruptions on trains and shipments over a almost 80-mile stretch between Connellsville, Pennsylvania, and Cumberland, Maryland. At least one auto containing liquid petroleum gas, and one containing molten sulfur leaked and caught fire, Doolittle said.

The county evacuated all buildings about a mile around the crash as a precaution against the possibility of a larger fire, Corley said.

Big Bang Theory does not plot out storyline arcs in advance, a change from how most television shows are traditionally produced. But when you take those same qualities and ask a 9-year-old to do that, it's a brat, it's not something that's very pleasant.


The train was operating from Chicago to Selkirk, N.Y. The derailment occurred at approximately 5:00 a.m. Hyndman is located about 100 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.

The incident prompted evacuation of residences and businesses within a half-mile of the derailment site.

"CSX will continue to coordinate with emergency personnel and local authorities to ensure that those living and working in this community will receive the lost up-to-date information possible", Doolittle said.

The Democratic governor said in a phone interview Wednesday from an evacuation center several miles from the scene that "there's a lot of uncertainty and everybody's hoping for the best". "I think, from what I hear, the potential of that happening has diminished somewhat". The number of residents displaced or how long they will have to remain away from their homes was not immediately known.

But investors may be most excited by the company forecast for current quarter revenues to come in from $49 billion to $52 billion. Apple is expected to unveil a special OLED iPhone model later this year alongside a couple of other updated iPhone models.


The National Transportation Safety Board has dispatched six investigators to the scene, three of whom are expected to arrive this afternoon. Amtrak suspended train service between Pittsburgh and Washington, D.C., providing buses to take passengers between the two stations. Hyndman is a town of just over 800 residents near the Maryland border. "These first responders deserve all of our thanks for their swift work to respond to this ongoing incident".
