At least three people were killed and 50 others were injured after an Amtrak train derailed in Montana on Saturday afternoon, setting off a frantic response by rescuers who scrambled to extricate passengers from cars, the authorities said.
Amtrak said that eight cars on an Empire Builder train had derailed at about 4 p.m. local time near Joplin, Mont., which is about 200 miles north of Helena. About 141 passengers and 16 crew members were on board, “with injuries reported,” Amtrak said in a statement.
The train consisted of two locomotives and 10 cars, and the tracks are run by BNSF Railway.
“Amtrak is working with the local authorities to transport injured passengers, and safely evacuate all other passengers,” the passenger rail service said in a statement.
