Pan Am Oil Tank Cars Derail in Mattawamkeag ME

The morning of March 7th saw 15 tank cars loaded with crude oil derail in Mattawamkeag, Maine.  Thirteen of the cars ended up on their sides.  No injuries were reported, and the only oil that appears to have contaminated the area was from old residue on the tanks themselves, built up during the loading process.  Reports state that there is a possibility of some oil leaking when crews begin the process of putting the cars upright again.
