News 6 reported today about a large train collision that caused a derailment and over 15,000 gallons of fuel to be spilled when two three-locomotive trains collided in the early morning hours of November 16. There were only minor injuries but with over 210 train cars involved roads were blocked and first responders are certain to have a lot on their hands in the aftermath.

No cause has yet been identified but we'll continue to monitor the ecological impact from the massive fuel spill.
