2 dead, more than 100 hurt in SC Amtrak crash

The Amtrak train's lead engine and some of the passenger cars derailed, Amtrak said.

South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster says the two deaths are employees of Amtrak.

"Remarkably, they are in good spirits, given what they went through this morning", said Cuthbert Langley, communications director for the South Carolina Region of the Red Cross.

Other Amtrak services along the Atlantic Coast, including the Auto Train (Trains 52 & 53), Palmetto (Trains 89 & 90) and Silver Meteor (Trains 97 & 98) are operating normally. No less than one individual is in basic condition, while two others are not kidding - it's really bad.

Lexington Medical Center spokesperson Jennifer Wilson confirmed that they treated 27 patients with minor injuries, and all but two have been released.

CSX issued a statement expressing condolences but said nothing about the cause of the accident.
