Amtrak stuck in snow for 24 hours, 183 passengers stranded
An Amtrak train that hit a down tree in Oregon stranded 183 passengers for more than 24 hours.
The train, headed to Los Angeles from Seattle, stopped in Oakridge, Oregon, around 6:20 p.m. Sunday. By Monday night, passengers remained stuck inside the train as heavy snow and road closures in the area reportedly made it difficult to get to them.
Amtrak chief operating officer Scot Naparstek told USA TODAY in a statement that the company worked with local resources to rescue the passengers, who were in route to Eugene, Oregon, on Tuesday morning. The company said no one was injured.
