The Bureau of Transportation Statistics is a branch of the United States Department of Transportation that analyzes and compiles information about the nationís transportation systems.

From 1990, the first year the BTS began tracking derailments and injuries on a yearly basis, to 2021, there have been 54,539 accidents in which a train derailed. Thatís an average of 1,704 derailments per year.

Additionally, tractor trailer trucks carrying all sorts of hazardous materials have road accidents resulting in spills.

Usually, these transportation mishaps are not much more than a local news story and donít create a hysterical panic.
