National Transportation Safety Board Chairwoman Deborah Hersman also says a company failed to seek a permit before doing excavation work prior to the June 8 blast that killed two workers. A bulldozer struck a pipeline near Darrouzett.
She says the north Texas line near Cleburne wasn’t marked when crews began digging June 7, causing a blast that killed one worker, but that construction company had followed proper procedures in locating the line before digging.
The Dallas Morning News reported that Hersman’s comments came recently at a U.S. Senate committee’s hearing on pipeline safety.
