NORTHFIELD, Vt. — An Amtrak train has derailed in central Vermont, after reportedly hitting a rock slide on the tracks.

The company said there are "no immediate reports of life-threatening injuries," and that the train "derailed after reportedly striking a rock slide on the tracks."

Several media outlets reported Monday morning that Vermont State Police and local fire and rescue agencies were responding to the scene in Northfield, about 10 miles southwest of Montpelier.

Amtrak reports the train was traveling between Saint Albans, Vermont to Washington, DC. The train was on the "Vermonter" line which runs through Washington DC, New York City, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont.

Instagram user @kalumakenge, a passenger on the derailed train, says people were "shaken," and only suffering "minor injuries."
