Amtrak: 400 Trapped Inside 2 Passenger Trains Near Donner Pass

-- Amtrak officials said Friday that nearly 400 people are trapped inside two passenger trains that have been stuck all afternoon in the snowy Northern California mountains.

An Amtrak spokeswoman said the trains were stranded near Donner Pass around 2 p.m. Friday after a large snow plow being used to clear the tracks fell through a walkway and blocked the trains' path.

The spokeswoman said Amtrak is trying to summon buses to nearby towns to evacuate passengers, but have had little luck because many of the vehicles are in Arizona for the Super Bowl.

 

Officials said at 7 p.m. that they expect it may take another hour or two to clear the tracks and that more snow has fallen since the accident.
