On April 30, 2014, a train carrying 14 oil tankers derailed alongside the James River in Lynchburg, VA. The situation posed a serious threat to clean-up crews. Lynchburg company East Coast Drones was able to use their aerial drone to take a look at the condition of the wreckage while first responders stayed a safe distance away.
