A dump truck caused Tuesday's CSX derailment outside of Baltimore, causing large explosions and a plume of smoke that could be seen from a mile away.
New information has emerged on the waste-removal company whose truck was smashed by an oncoming CSX train outside Baltimore earlier this week.
Alban's Waste had been flagged previously for having a poor safety record and failed its most recent compliance audit, according to federal transportation and state police records.
The trucker who owns the company was seriously injured when the train collided with his truck vehicle, causing a derailment and explosion in Rosedale, just north of Baltimore.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration says Alban's Waste falls in the bottom 10 percent of trucking companies in the U.S. when it comes to safety compliance.
Out of 43 inspections, one of the three trucks from the company was reportedly placed out of service for regulatory violations a total of 17 times.
Federal regulators and inspectors with the Maryland State Police say they are planning a thorough audit of the company.
