2 Hurt In Accident At Amtrak Train Yard
Two workers were injured at an Amtrak train yard near downtown Los Angeles early Tuesday, according the the Associated Press. The workers were reportedly "on a rolling work cart that got caught between two moving trains. The cart was destroyed."
The hurt workers were taken to a hospital for minor injuries, said Fire Department spokesman Cecil Manresa. The Amtrak mechanical department rail facility is located on East 8th Street south of downtown and north of Interstate 10.
