This report explains the August 24, 1996, rupture of a steel pipeline operated by Koch Pipeline Company, LP (Koch), which sent a butane vapor cloud into the surrounding residential area. The butane vapor ignited as two residents in a pickup truck drove into the cloud. The occupants of the truck died from thermal injuries. About 25 families were evacuated from the area. Damages related to the accident exceeded 217,000. From its investigation of this accident, the Safety Board identified safety issues in the following areas: the adequacy of Koch's corrosion inspection and mitigation actions, and the effectiveness of Koch's public education program, particularly with respect to educating residents near the pipeline about recognizing hazards and responding appropriately during a pipeline leak.
