An Amtrak spokeswoman said a train heading to Florida derailed just outside Washington, causing several minor injuries and delaying the train for about four hours.

Amtrak spokeswoman Vernae Graham said the train derailed about 8:30 p.m. Saturday in Fairfax County, Va., and got under way again about 12:40 a.m. Sunday. Graham says several passengers and crew members suffered minor bumps and bruises.

Graham said the train was not a regularly scheduled train, but a special train headed for West Palm Beach with 712 passengers and 15 crew members.
