TACOMA, Washington (AP):
Authorities say multiple people were killed when an Amtrak passenger train derailed on to Interstate 5 south of Seattle.
Pierce County sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer says none of the fatalities were motorists who were in cars and trucks when the train came off the tracks on to I-5.
He says emergency responders are working to get survivors out and to area hospitals.
Authorities say the train derailed before 8 a.m. Monday, but no specifics were immediately available.
