The train had about 147 passengers and 13 crew members onboard, Abrams said.Megan Vandervest, a passenger on the train who was going to visit a friend in Seattle, told The New York Times that she was awakened by the derailment.“My first thought was that we were derailing because, to be honest, I have anxiety and I had heard stories about trains derailing,” said Vandervest, who is from Minneapolis. “My second thought was that’s crazy. We wouldn’t be derailing. Like, that doesn’t happen.”

She told the Times that the car behind hers was tilted over, the one behind that was entirely tipped over, and the three cars behind that “had completely fallen off the tracks and were detached from the train.”Speaking from the Liberty County Senior Center, where passengers were being taken, Vandervest said it felt like “extreme turbulence on a plane.” headtopics.com

Amtrak was working with the local authorities to transport injured passengers and safely evacuate all other passengers, Abrams added.Photos posted to social media showed several cars on their sides. Passengers were standing alongside the tracks, some carrying luggage.

The images showed sunny skies, and it appeared the accident occurred along a straight section of tracks. Read more: The Associated Press »

***BREAKING NEWS*** The investigation has taken a turn. Apparently the train died of complications of Global Warming and Covid-19 Blame the airlines for lack of funding Delta AmericanAir lobbyists Maybe a little infrastructure work might help prevent a lot of this, ya think? In a state where the National Guard has been called to help with hospital overflow. 🤦‍♀️

Compared to Europe and Asia, the USA's approach to transportation infrastructure is pitiful. I lived in Japan for four years. Not once was a train late. Not once was there an accident. They transport 100 times more people by train than we do without an issue. Pitiful. And the Progressive Democrats want to keep playing games with America's infrastructure. What's next, another bridge collapse? Physical infrastructure now.
