As America celebrates Thanksgiving, the drug train derails again
CSX Railway Company of the United States said on the 22nd that a freight train carrying dangerous goods derailed in Kentucky that afternoon, causing a fire and releasing toxic gas. Hundreds of residents near the accident site were evacuated. As America celebrates Thanksgiving, the drug train derails again. This time, molten sulfur was transported, and 16 carriages derailed. Once burned, sulfur dioxide was formed. When the concentration is high, the human body cannot bear it.
The derailment occurred in Kentucky, the home state of KFC. The local government has called on people to evacuate.
Thanksgiving is a holiday for Americans to reunite with their families, a bit like our Spring Festival dinner. Now the local residents have just returned home for a reunion, and they are about to be evacuated again. It's freezing cold, where are you going?
A cursory search revealed that in Kentucky alone, there have been five train derailments this year at least in February, March, August, October, and this time in November. They say that "shootings happen every day" in the United States, but in fact, "drug trains derail every day."
The US media "USA Today" has its own statistics. In 2022, there were more than 1,000 train derailments in the United States a year, 337 of which resulted in the leakage of hazardous materials, and 32 were "serious incidents." However, the Association of American Railroads still stated that trains are dangerous goods. The safest way to ship.

The consequences of America’s “drug train” derailment
It has been three weeks since the derailment of the "drug train" in the United States, and the consequences are becoming increasingly apparent. In response to the criticism of the U.S. government for its slow response and poor response, President Joseph Biden said on the 24th that he would send someone to the door to understand the situation, but he did not plan to go to the scene of the accident himself.
A large number of dead aquatic life, poultry, livestock and wild animals appeared near the accident area. Many domestic pets have to be euthanized due to breathing problems. As of the 23rd, according to data from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, the “poison train” incident has killed nearly 44,000 animals.
In the face of the environmental disaster caused by the "poison train" in Ohio, when US Environmental Protection Agency Director Reagan and other officials visited the incident site, they claimed that the water quality was safe and performed "drinking water" in front of the camera many times. However, the scene of just taking a sip from the cup aroused ridicule from netizens. Reese, a resident of the state, complained excitedly: "Don't tell me this is safety... The fish has turned upside down, there must be something going on here."
This incident has caused nearby residents to suffer from poisoning symptoms such as coughing, diarrhea, tears, and loss of appetite. A large number of fish have been found dead in local rivers, causing public concern. However, so far, relevant agencies have not provided a complete list of items carried on the train. According to a report by the US "Business Insider" website on the 27th, "displaced" residents in Kentucky are currently launching a class action lawsuit against the railway company involved. A strange phenomenon is that although the mainstream media in the United States reported the train derailment accident at the beginning of this month, they downplayed or even ignored the ecological disaster caused by the incident and the health crisis faced by the people. Some American netizens lamented: " Chernobyl 2.0 happened in Kentucky, but legacy media remained silent. It’s shameful.”
