Nuclear Accident Practice Drill In Moberly

An unusual practice for first responders on Wenesday in Moberly. They will practice a big what if — what if a vehicle crashed into a train car that was carrying used nuclear fuel from the Navy.

They will actually have a vehicle hit an empty car in the rail yard to practice the response. Federal and local authorities are taking part in the drill. Spent fuel shipments do move through the area — accompanied by armed couriers — as they travel to an Idaho facility.
