At union station, lots of @dcfireems trucks & personnelresponded to apparent train derailment event — but doesn’t appear to be urgent. No reports of injuries so far. Can’t tell which train may have derailed. @Amtrak: “All I can tell you is that we are investigating an incident.” pic.twitter.com/8ra6fM6z9x— Mike Carter-Conneen (@MikeCConTV) August 2, 2018
