In shocking security footage obtained by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the Norfolk Southern train that derailed in East Palestine, Ohio, traveled at least 20 miles with a malfunctioning axle.
The video shows sparks and flames underneath the Norfolk Southern train.
According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, footage of the train’s fiery axle came from businesses in Salem, Ohio.
At 8:12 p.m. on Feb. 3, the southbound freight train passed by Butech Bliss, an industrial equipment manufacturer in Salem. One car, a few dozen behind the first locomotive, glowed brightly on the bottom as it passed.
A minute later and a mile down the track, a camera at a meat processing plant called Fresh Mark captured the same fiery axle.
