NATIONAL TRANSPORTATION SAFETY BOARD


Public Hearing

    On Tuesday, February 26, 2013 the National Transportation Safety 
Board (NTSB) will convene an Investigative Hearing to gather additional 
factual information for the ongoing investigation into the collision of 
Union Pacific intermodal train No. ZLAAH-22 with Union Pacific (UP) 
intermodal train No. AAMMLX-22 on June 24, 2012 near Goodwell, 
Oklahoma. The hearing will begin at 9:00 a.m., is open to all, and the 
attendance is free (no registration required). All five NTSB Board 
Members will serve as members of the Board of Inquiry. The NTSB 
Chairman Deborah A.P. Hersman will preside over the Investigative 
Hearing.
    On June 24, 2012, about 10:01 a.m. central daylight time, eastbound 
UP freight train ZLAAH-22 and westbound UP freight train AAMMLX-22 
collided head on while operating on straight track on UP's Pratt 
Subdivision near Goodwell, Oklahoma. As a result of the collision, both 
crewmembers on the eastbound train and one crewmember on the westbound 
train were fatally injured. The other crewmember on the westbound train 
jumped from the locomotive prior to the collision and survived with no 
major injuries. Fuel tanks from the derailed locomotives were ruptured, 
which created a diesel-fed fire. Damage was estimated at $14.79 
million. Although this accident investigation is still ongoing, 
evidence points to the fact that this collision could have been 
prevented by a positive train control (PTC) system. Analysis of the 
accident, along with conclusions and a determination of probable cause, 
will become public at a later date after a final report on the 
investigation is completed, and reviewed and adopted by the NTSB 
Members.
    The investigative hearing is being held to discuss UP's management 
of human error in its operations and system safety programs, and the 
status of PTC implementation on the UP. The goals of this hearing would 
be to promote and facilitate dialogue to better understand UP's safety 
management policies and programs associated with human error, 
operational accident and incident data collection, and the use such 
data to improve safety, and the current status of PTC implementation.
    Parties to the hearing include the FRA, Union Pacific Railroad, 
United Transportation Union, and the Brotherhood of Locomotive 
Engineers & Trainmen.
