WASHINGTON, D.C. — The National Transportation Safety Board will meet to determine the probable cause of the train derailment and hazardous material release in Paulsboro, New Jersey.

On Friday, November 30, 2012, at approximately 7 a.m. (EST), a southbound Conrail freight train, consisting of two locomotives and 82 cars, derailed seven cars while traveling over a moveable bridge spanning Mantua Creek in Paulsboro, N.J. Four tank cars, three containing vinyl chloride and one containing ethanol, came to rest in Mantua Creek. One of the derailed tank cars was breached and released approximately 20,000 gallons of vinyl chloride into the creek and surrounding area. There were no fatalities resulting from the accident. The train conductor and several residents were treated at local hospitals for exposure to vinyl chloride and released.
