Dwyer Jr. said Thursday that he had been drinking alcohol when a motorboat he was operating collided with another boat in the Magothy River — an accident that left six people with serious injuries.

A worn and fractured rail along train tracks through Ellicott City caused the coal train derailment that killed two women in 2012, the National Transportation Safety Board said Thursday. In its final report on the accident, the NTSB said it found evidence that the section of CSX Transportation rail showed signs of "gradual deterioration of the rail-head surface" from passing trains. The finding makes official preliminary conclusions about a rail break contributing to the accident that were released in a docket of investigatory documents last month.

We were saddened to hear of the accidental exposure of YMCA campers to excessive levels of pool chemicals at Camp Letts in Edgewater ( "Anne Arundel campers sickened by chemicals in pool," July 9). With proper pool design, operation and maintenance, this type of accident is preventable. Ideally, the pool water pump and pool chemical feeders should be operationally linked to prevent sudden influxes of excess chemical following a lull in pumping. Accidents like the one at Camp Letts could be avoided in the future if pools are designed and operated according to specifications in the new Model Aquatic Health Code.
