- October 21, 2012: About a dozen passengers and crew members on an Amtrak train from Chicago to Pontiac, Michigan, were injured when two locomotives and one or more coaches derailed after the train lost contact with the track near Niles, Michigan.

Amtrak president and co-chief executive Richard Anderson said he was "deeply saddened" by the crash.

Conductor: "We were coming around the corner to take the bridge over I-5 there ... and we went on the ground".

President Donald Trump said an Amtrak passenger train derailment that killed at least six people in Washington state bolstered his case for investing in the nation's crumbling infrastructure.

Six died on February 3, 2015 outside New York City when a packed commuter train and a auto which was crossing the track collided, leaving six dead and 15 injured.

Five vehicles and two trucks were involved in the accident, and the highway was littered with fragments of the bridge and tree branches. Nobody in those vehicles died.

In 2015, an Amtrak train going far over the designated speed for a stretch of curves in the track in Philadelphia derailed, killing eight.

A spokeswoman for Washington State police, Brooke Bova, confirmed the death toll, adding that all train cars had been searched by emergency personnel.

"All of a sudden, we felt this rocking and creaking noise, and it felt like we were heading down a hill", Karnes said.

Monday was the first day of the new route for Amtrak 501's Cascades service from Seattle to Portland, according to company's website.

Local authorities reported multiple casualties. A National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) member told reporters it was too early to say what may have caused the crash.

Amtrak service south of Seattle is temporarily suspended. Team will depart DC today.

"We will update with additional details as they become available", Amtrak said.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee declared a state of emergency for the counties affected by the derailment and asked motorists to avoid traveling on Interstate 5 while the Washington Department of Transportation works on alternate routes. Trudi and I are holding in our hearts everyone on board, and are praying for the many injured.
