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.
