Three more first responders to last year's train derailment in Paulsboro filed suit Wednesday against Conrail and its parent companies, raising fresh allegations against the companies that came to light last month during hearings with federal investigators.
The responders, who are police officers in Paulsboro and Greenwich Township, joined 15 other plaintiffs, including first responders, already involved in separate litigation against Conrail. At least 15 other suits have been filed against Conrail.
Four tanker cars fell off a Paulsboro bridge in November. One breached, releasing toxic vinyl chloride into the atmosphere and forcing hundreds from their homes.
