“These incidents happen very quickly, but take time to go through,” Jim Southworth told reporters at an initial briefing on May 1. “We are simply gathering facts now before moving into the analytical phase. Depending on the complexity of this accident, it could take 6 months to a year-and-a-half before this investigation is finished.”

This is tragic, but any time you move merchandise, there is the risk of an accident no matter what the method of transportation. Hopefully the damage to property and lives is minimum.
