A freight train derailed Friday on an old-style swing bridge that apparently buckled, three years after a similar failure, toppling at least two tanker cars into a creek and causing a leak of hazardous gas blamed for sickening dozens of people, authorities said.
"We typically don't make those recovering from substance abuse sign documents admitting their problem, so let's not hold those fighting to recover from gambling addiction to a more difficult standard," Assemblyman John Burzichelli added. "This can help many people get the help they need without embarrassing them."
Assemblyman John Burzichelli, who is serving as spokesman for the town, said the bridge apparently buckled as it did during a derailment in 2009.
