Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin said the state would work with the federal government to review safety on the tracks and analyze rock ledges after a rock slide led to a train derailment Monday morning.
“We don’t want to go through this a second time,” Shumlin said.
Crews would have to move the trains with cranes, address fuel spillage and rebuild damaged tracks in order to get trcks operating normally, Shumlin said.
“This is not a 24-hour turnaround,” he said. “It’s going to take us some time."
Emergency crews responded to a derailed Amtrak train in Roxbury, Vermont on around 11:30 a.m. Monday.
In a statement, Amtrak said there were no life-threatening injuries.
First responders are on the scene. There are no immediate reports of any life-threatening injuries.
Further updates will be provided as more information becomes available.
The son of two passengers (handle: @brianabell1980) shared what he said were pictures from the scene of the derailment on Twitter.
