An Amtrak train derailed near DuPont Washington around 7:40 a.m. Monday
At least six people were killed by the derailment of an Amtrak train near Tacoma in the U.S. Washington state Monday morning, local authorities said.
It also happened on the first day of a new route for Amtrak trains moving between Tacoma and the state capital of Olympia.
"We had just passed the city of DuPont and it seemed like we were going around a curve", passenger Chris Karnes - the chair of the Pierce Transit Community Transportation Advisory Group (CTAG) - told local CBS News affiliate KIRO-TV.
"The next thing we know, we're being slammed into the front of our seats, windows are breaking, we stop, and there's water gushing out of the train".
Three deaths have been confirmed by Pierce County Sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer, the Seattle Times reported. "We are aware of an incident involving Amtrak train 501", the rail operator said on Twitter.
A website that maps location and speed using data from Amtrak's train tracker app showed the train was going 81.1 miles per hour (129 kph) about a quarter of a mile from the point where it derailed, where the speed limit is significantly lower.
President Donald Trump leapt to blame crumbling rail lines for the crash even though the train jumped a new section of track
"There was one person who was injured in our vehicle, and I was sent to go find help for them".

The National Transportation Safety Board has sent a team of experts to investigate the incident. "Emergency services are on the scene and Amtrak management is responding", it said in an earlier tweet. "We got off after shooting the video".

The trains were expected to reach speeds of 79 miles (127 kilometers) per hour through the densely populated area with the improved systems and track.
All southbound lanes of Interstate 5 were closed south of Joint Base Lewis-McChord, and motorists were being warned to avoid the area.
US President Donald Trump used the tragedy to push for his proposed infrastructure reform before offering his condolences 10 minutes later.
At the time, analysts said positive train control technology could have prevented the accident.
