Is this an act of Terror?
Daily Mail reports a train crash resulted in unknown 'hazardous materials' being spilled and a gas line being ruptured in a Washington, D.C. suburb early Sunday morning, emergency officials have said.

As many as 11 cars tumbled off the tracks after the CSX freight train derailed near the Rhode Island Avenue Metro station 6:40am, with up to three of them spilling the hazardous substance.

The supply to the gas line has been turned off and it is unclear how many people have been affected by the closure, NBC Washington reported.

  2. That was terrible. Freight forwarders must be careful while transporting heavy equipment transportation or chemicals.
