RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – Senator Mark Warner will lead a railroad safety meeting in Richmond on Monday.
Seventeen train cars derailed, three of which plunged into the James River, spilling about 30,000 gallons of oil into the river.
Local, state and federal officials, including leaders from the U.S. Department of Transportation and a CSX representative, will join Warner to talk about safe transport of crude oil by rail in Virginia.
The meeting gets underway at 10:30 a.m. at the auditorium at VDOT headquarters on Broad Street.
