Comments Off

An Amtrak train derailed on Monday evening after a set of wheels jumped the track.

There were 112 passengers aboard Lincoln Service Train 304. The train remained upright, and no one was injured, according to Amtrak.

The train was headed from St. Louis to Chicago. The derailment happened just south of Joliet. There were only 3 stops left: Joliet, Summit and Chicago’s Union Station. Passengers stayed on the train and waited for buses to transport them to their destination stops.
