BLACKWELL, Mo. - An Amtrak train carrying 103 people derailed in eastern Missouri after apparently striking boulders on the tracks from a rockslide, officials said Thursday. About 20 people sustained minor injuries.
The train was moving slowly through a winding area near Blackwell, about 50 miles southwest of St. Louis, when it struck the rockslide, Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer said Thursday. He described boulders about half the size of a car hood on the track.
Tracks at the derailment site reopened Thursday evening.
The National Transportation Safety Board has decided it will not investigate the derailment, spokesman Terry Williams said.
