ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A close call for the Texas Eagle Amtrak train and a passenger vehicle in Jefferson County.

“Everyone is OK on the train, even though we had to stop very quickly. It was a nice comfortable stop, but it was a fast stop,” says Allen Smith, one of the Amtrak passengers, following an accident this morning at Sulphur Springs Landing and Burgess Street between the train and a Jeep.

Smith says the driver of the passenger vehicle involved in the accident is a man who appears to be OK.

“State troopers are here, everybody’s OK, and they’re making their paperwork, I guess,” he says.

Crews remain on the scene of the accident.
