BAKERSFILED, Calif. - Tuesday morning Amtrak travelers were forced to reroute to busses because of a train derailment Monday afternoon.
Early morning passenger, Chris Larot said he was worried the additional travel time would cut into his work schedule.
"Apparently I have to take an hour ride over to Hanford so I don't think I'll be back till after lunch time," Larot said.
The train was derailed in Hanford while traveling to Bakersfield Monday afternoon after a big rig failed to yield, and slammed into the passenger train, Amtrak officials said.
Amtrak officials reported that 46 people suffered mild to moderate injuries.
