Amtrak Crescent derails in South Carolina

Officials say several cars of the Amtrak Crescent carrying over 200 people derailed overnight Monday.

Authorities say the train jumped the tracks in a rural area near Spartanburg, which is about 80 miles west of Charlotte.

Four passengers had minor injures and were taken to nearby hospitals.

The company is sending in buses to take passengers to their destination.

The train was traveling between New Orleans and New York.
