Authorities say about 4,000 gallons of crude oil spilled into a parking lot Thursday, when more than 21 cars on a Norfolk Southern rail line between Vandergrift and East Vandergrift derailed around 8:30 a.m.
No injuries were reported. Allegheny Front reporter Reid Frazier, covered the story for WESA, and NPR news.
Frazier says the area is reported to be safe, because the parking lot managed to contain the spill. But how can area residents be sure it's safe?
