Amtrak train derailment in Montana leaves at least 3 people dead and ’50 injured’.

THREE people have died and another 50 have been injured after an Amtrak train derailed in Montana on Saturday.

Eight railroad cars detached on the westbound train and toppled over at the "gory" scene, with reports of passengers "trapped and injured under the cars" circulating on social media.

The train derailed in the small town of Havre at around 4pm local time, Amtrak spokesman Jason Abrams confirmed.

One person, who was sleeping when the train derailed, told an Al Jazeera journalist she awoke to find a "'gory' scene in other coach cars".

The train had about 141 passengers and 16 crew members on board at the time of the incident, Abrams said. The train had 10 cars, eight of which derailed.

"We are deeply saddened to learn local authorities are now confirming that three people have lost their lives as a result of this accident," Abrams said.

"There are also reported injuries among the passengers and crew members travelling on the train."

The company said it was working with local authorities to transport people and "evacuate all other passengers".
