Authorities say an Amtrak train headed to Washington, D.C. derailed in central Vermont, leaving six people injured.
Central Vermont Medical Center CEO Judy Tartaglia said six people are in the emergency room. None of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening.
The patients sustained neck, back and shoulder pain along with lightheadedness and a wrist injury. Tartaglia said she doesn't expect more patients.
Five cars were reportedly derailed in the incident, with three falling down a steep embankment.
Amtrak confirmed in a Twitter post Monday that the Vermonter train had derailed. According to the Amtrak website, the 13-hour, 45-minute daily trip begins in St. Albans in northern Vermont. The train is supposed to pass through Burlington, Vermont, Springfield, Massachusetts, and New York before arriving in D.C.
Vermont State Police and local fire and rescue agencies are responding to the scene in Northfield, about 10 miles southwest of Montpelier. Numerous emergency vehicles are at the scene.
