NTSB Set to Release Final Report on Maryland Derailment

October 23, 2014

Federal regulators are set to release their final report in a fiery 2013 crash between a freight train and a dump truck that caused an explosive derailment and rattled homes a half-mile away.

Police have said the truck driver who tried to go through a railroad crossing caused the derailment of the CSX train last May, leading to an explosion and fire in Rosedale, a suburb east of Baltimore. The driver was injured but survived.

The National Transportation Safety Board is set to release its final report of the collision, including findings and recommendations, at a news conference Wednesday.

The NTSB has previously said that the company that owns the dump truck, Alban Waste LLC, had an above-average number of violations, resulting in trucks being ordered off the road.
