"No fatalities on the roadway". At this time, all lanes of traffic remain blocked on Interstate 5 in Pierce County, about 22 miles southwest of Tacoma.
The service was supposed to be rated for a maximum speed of 79 miles per hour for the section where it derailed in DuPont, according to passenger Chris Karnes.
The National Railroad Passenger Corporation, or Amtrack, said in a statement that there were 78 passengers and five crew members on board the train.
