Only one week after Senator Chuck Schumer visited Rockland warning that local first responders need more access to information of train contents to assist with fighting possible train derailments, a crude oil train derailed in Virginia.

Governor Andrew Cuomo said, “Earlier today, I wrote a letter to President Obama urging the federal government take immediate steps to bring much needed and overdue safety regulation to the crude oil transportation system. Just hours later, news comes of yet another serious oil train derailment, this time in Lynchburg, Virginia. Our thoughts and prayers are with any possible victims of this accident.”
