Seventy-seven passengers and seven crew members were aboard when the train crashed along the highway. About 50 people were hospitalized, some with critical and serious injuries.

Those on board the train described the horror of the crash.

"I was just coming out of the bathroom when the accident happened. My car just started shaking really, really badly. Things were falling off the shelf. Right away, you knew that this was not something minor," Aleksander Kristiansen, a 24-year-old exchange student at the University of Washington from Copenhagen, told the AP.
