Train burns assclowns line up to sue

Kentucky Train Chemicals Still Burning

Federal officials said early inspections indicate the crew of a CSX train acted properly just before it derailed, igniting a massive chemical fire that forced evacuations south of Louisville.

The fire sent thick black clouds of smoke into the sky, prompting officials to evacuate residents and shut down a major highway. Firefighters were finishing a controlled burn of some chemicals from tanker cars.

"We have not found any anomalies in operations at this point; we've not seen any train handling issues at this point," said Mark Rosenker, chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board. "So it seems that we need to be focusing more our efforts on examining equipment and track."

Investigators are inspecting the track for nicks and abrasions, Rosenker said. The federal agency considers the derailment an accident.

Meanwhile, seven Bullitt County residents sued CSX, the rail operator, in federal court in Louisville on Thursday. They alleged that CSX officials acted negligently before the crash and chemical fire forced them to either stay in their homes or evacuate. The suit seeks a class action against CSX and an unspecified amount of money.

The fires no even out yet and here we go with the lawsuits. Can we not even wait to see what the hell happened first? I hope those chemicals cause some sort of reaction in those 7 people and their dicks rot off.
