A 120-car Norfolk Southern Corporation train carrying heavy Canadian crude oil derailed and spilled in western Pennsylvania Thursday. There were no reports of injury when the 21 tank cars came off the track. But three of the crude tank cars spilled after the incident. The leaks were plugged and the company did not say how much oil spilled. This is the latest in a string of recent crude oil train derailments that has prompted calls for more stringent rules and regulations. A Senate hearing about the safety of transporting crude by rail was scheduled for Thursday but was delayed by the snow.
