Tanker trailer carrying methane gas ends up in Trussville ditch; home evacuations underway
First responders are on the scene of a crash in Trussville involving a tanker trailer carrying methane gas.

Trussville police Sgt. Mike Bruce said the crash is at the intersection of Floyd Bradford Road and Dollar Road. The truck failed to negotiate a turn at the intersection, left the roadway and ended up in a ditch. It did not overturn. Both streets are closed in the area while Trussville Fire hazmat units are working the scene.

Bruce said residents within a half mile of the accident are being evacuated. As of 9 p.m., there was no gas leaking from the trailer and the evacuation is only a precaution.

How the Airline Industry Defines a Near Miss - The Atlantic
Safety experts have known the value of near-miss tracking and root-cause analysis in preventing tragedy since at least 1931, when engineer Herbert William Heinrich theorized in Industrial Accident Prevention: A Scientific Approach that there were 300 near-misses for every 29 accidents and every one serious accident or fatality. In Heinrich’s model, the near-miss incidents are the bottom of a pyramid, the accidents are the next level up, and the fatal accidents are at the top.
