Dana Huoppi, a spokeswoman with the Montpelier Fire Department, said at least two cars went off the track and over an embankment. First responders are on their way to the scene.

At least four people are injured, Huoppi said, and they are being transported for medical care. Ninety-eight people were aboard the train when it derailed, said Hjonis Hanson, a spokesman for Central Vermont Medical Center.
