Baku, December 28, AZERTAC
A freight train carrying approximately 200,000 litres of sulphuric acid has derailed east of Julia Creek in north-west Queensland.
The locomotive and all 26 carriages derailed at 10:20am about 20 kilometres east of the outback town.
Authorities declared an emergency under the Public Safety Preservation Act and placed a two-kilometre exclusion zone around the crash site.
They said there was minor leakage of sulphuric acid and diesel fuel spillage at the crash site.
Aurizon said three drivers sustained minor injuries in the accident and attended the Julia Creek hospital.
"Two drivers have been released and the third is expected to be released later today," an Aurizon spokesperson said on Sunday.
