A Southern Pacific train derailed at 9:50 p.m. July 14, 1991, at Cantara Loop between Dunsmuir and Mt. Shasta. The derailment launched a tanker car into the Sacramento River, causing a spill of 19,000 gallons of metam sodium. The chemical kills fungi, weeds and pests. The spill killed more than a 1 million fish in the river, including more than 300,000 rainbow trout. Video courtesy of Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board.
