GROBONGAN - One wagon from a train that transported fuel from Rowo, Cilacap to Cepu, derailed near Ledok Dawan, Geyer, Grobongan in central Java. The accident happened because the soil near the place of derailment became unstable. One out of the sixteen wagons filled with fuel derailed and rolled over. The fuel leaked away near the track.
According to a member of the regional police in Grobogan, the unstable soil around the place of the accident was not the only thing that caused the derailment. One of the wheels of the wagon was damaged as well. The supporting structure of the railroad track probably also contributed to the derailment. Around 11.00 local time the track was cleared and railroad traffic was continued again.
