Rescuers and fire fighters have begun collecting the fuel spilt from railway tanks that derailed in the Tver region on Wednesday
“Of the 24 derailed railway tanks with fuel, 15 overturned. Fuel is leaking from them. The other tanks have careened,” an adviser to the Emergencies Minister, Viktor Beltsov, told Itar-Tass. He said workers are building a dirt wall to prevent the fuel from leaking into the river Vazuza that is 150 metres from the scene of the incident. Top officials from the Emergencies Ministry are on their way to the Tver region. Vice President of the Russian Railways company Vladimir Sazonov has also flown to the region. Sazonov is also the head of the commission set up by the company to investigate the incident. Beltsov said the railway where the incident happened is a one-way railway and not electrified. The incident happened at 8.05 p.m. (1605 GMT) in the Rzhev district of the Tver region, between the stations of Zubtsovo and Arestovo. According to Beltsov, there were 60 fuel tanks in the train.
