CIMARRON, Kan. (AP) – Officials say two of the people injured when a passenger train derailed in western Kansas are in critical condition.
Caytie Martin, a spokeswoman for the Northwest Texas Healthcare System, says the two were airlifted to the Amarillo, Texas, hospital after the early Monday derailment near Cimarron, a rural community about 160 miles west of Wichita.
Amtrak says 32 people were treated at hospitals and nearly all of them had been released by late morning.
A hospital in Dodge City says it admitted a patient who is in stable condition and a hospital in Garden City says it admitted a patient in good condition.
The train with 131 passengers and 14 crew members was headed from Los Angeles to Chicago. An Amtrak spokesman says one crew member was treated at the scene.
