Amtrak Train Derails in Massachusetts

No injuries reported among passengers or crew

An Amtrak train en route from Washington, D.C., to Boston partially derailed early Monday morning after it hit a truck that was obstructing the tracks, officials said, temporarily halting service to and from Boston.

None of the 222 passengers or crew on the busy Northeast Regional line train were injured, Amtrak said. Police confirmed to WCVB that the truck was occupied, but wouldn’t say what happened to the people inside, only that the area is now a “large crime scene.”

Passengers, who were stranded for about four hours after the crash took place at about 4:30 a.m., were taken to Boston on a regional train line. Amtrak said at about 7 a.m. that service between Boston and Providence had been restored.
