Train Derailment Results in $7 Million Settlement

Over 3000 residents of Minot, North Dakota recently began receiving their share of a $7 million settlement stemming from a 2002 train accident in the area. In 2002, a train owned and operated by the Canadian Pacific Railway ran off the tracks in the vicinity of the small town, causing a major chemical spill that released toxic substances such as anhydrous ammonia into the environment. Many residents complained of eye problems and breathing difficulties in the aftermath of the incident, and several believe they developed cases of lung cancer as a result of the exposure.
