Amtrak train Derails Above Highway In Washington State Killing 3

An inaugural ride on Amtrak’s new line meant to speed train service in Washington state turned deadly Monday after a train carrying more than 80 people derailed outside of Tacoma ā€” causing several train cars to tumble from an overpass onto an interstate highway, officials said.

“Multiple fatalities” were reported after Amtrak train 501 derailed about 7:30 a.m. along Interstate 5 as it was leaving the new Tacoma station, Pierce County Sheriff’s Spokesman Ed Troyer said. At least 3 are DOA and others with serious injuries.

This is a developing story.
