Oil Spill Caused by Tenino Train Collision
TENINO, WA (January 13, 2020) – An oil spill occurred after a tow truck and train collision on Blumauer Road on January 8.
According to reports, a tow truck hauling a semi crashed into empty train cars before midnight on Blumauer Road and Crowder Road.
The truck traveled at the intersection when it lost control of the brakes due to its weight. It then struck a parked train used to store empty cars. Meanwhile, Gus Melonas with Burlington Northern Santa Fe added that following the crash, a freight train went to an adjacent rail and clipped the train car involved in the first crash.
No one sustained any injury.
Meanwhile, the semi sustained a ruptured fuel line in the crash and leaked around 30 gallons of diesel fuel in the area, Ty Keltner with the Department of Ecology revealed.
Moreover, the crash didn’t affect the passenger train traffic in the area. However, authorities shut down Crowder Road during the cleanup.
