Freight Train Carrying Sulphuric Acid Derails (Video)

Freight Train Carrying Sulphuric Acid Derails :A freight train loaded with around 200,000 litres of sulphuric acid has derailed in the Australian outback.

The 26-carriage train came off the tracks around 12 miles east of Julia Creek in northwest Queensland.

Three people were treated for minor injuries, local media reports say.

There has been minor leakage of sulphuric acid and diesel fuel spillage, and an exclusion zone has been set up around the wreckage.

Queensland Rail was quoted as saying: “Emergency services attended the scene, however, Queensland Rail crews have been unable to access the site as the Flinders highway is currently cut off due to flooding in the region.

“Safety is Queensland Rail’s number one priority and we are investigating the cause of the incident and will work closely with relevant authorities on the environmental response as required.”
