Not Satire: Truck carrying toxic soil from East Palestine train derailment overturns, pollutes new area
· Apr 11, 2023 ·

Remember that huge train derailment in Ohio a while back? The one that Joe Biden blamed on Trump, and Mayor Pete declared contained despite the rainbow colored water and the workers cleaning it up getting sick.

Well, they‘ve apparently been trucking contaminated soil from out of the area — who knows where.

In a twist of fate, one of the trucks carrying 40,000 lbs of toxic soil got in an accident with a utility pole and a ditch, overturning near state Route 165 near Waterford Road in Columbiana County, Ohio.

Much like the train derailment, the toxic contents spilled everywhere. The Ohio EPA rushed to the scene and said there was no contamination into local waterways.

And much like the government's response to the East Palestine accident, officials say there's nothing to worry about: Everything has been cleaned up, and the roads are back open.

Can this horrible saga please end?
