I didn't hear about this pipeline accident at the time, but I read the NTSB Pipeline Accident Report. It made me feel sick.

The parent of 2 of 3 young men killed in a pipeline accident in Bellingham, WA in 1999, founded a pipeline safety group as well.

Other stories I've read concerning this explosion appear to contradict the one posted here. In particular, the statement that the two teenagers died instantly is probably wishful thinking on the part of the author.

Is the Countryman girl that was found dead in Oregon related to the Countrymans at Cedar Creek Lake? Just wondering...they are friends, but I haven't been able to contact anyone.

I cannot be a person looking in telling the families of Danielle Smalley and Jason Stone how sorry I am for their loss because I was there!!!! Danielle and Amy Smalley were like sisters that I never had but always wanted. Now I have no contact with Amy!!!Money changes things!!!!But there is not a day that goes by that I don't think about both of them. I often wonder how different things may have been if Danielle were still here... She was a very very special person and I just feel blessed that GOD gave me the opportunity to have known someone with such a big heart!!!!

They did die instantly. Their truck exploded in my sisters back yard. The kids were friends of my family. Their blood is on Koch bros hands.
