Amtrak Train Derails, Cars Roll In Philadelphia; Injuries Reported

Posted by:

A Washington, D.C., to New York Amtrak train has crashed and derailed in the Port Richmond area of Philadelphia, the Associated Press reports, causing several injuries. Some cars appear to have rolled.

Former U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy reported on Twitter that he was on the train — which AP reports was entering a curve at the time of the crash — and assisting injured passengers, and that he himself was unhurt.

Eight to 9 cars were involved in the derailment, and dozens of passengers may be injured, Fox News reported.

NPR will provide updates as they become available.
