An Amtrak train with passengers on board has derailed near the Savannah Station on Seabord Coastline Drive. 

One passenger says they've been waiting on the train for over an hour. Some switches on the train track had allegedly frozen, causing the train to have to stop, and when they tried to reverse the train, two luggage compartments on the back derailed. 

The Silver Meteor train #98 was traveling from Miami to New York when the incident happened about 10 p.m. Wednesday, Amtrak spokesman Jason Abrams said.

Savannah-Chatham Metro Police, fire officials, and EMTs are on scene. Thankfully, no injuries were involved. Officials tell us the derailment happened about 1,000 yards short of the station. 

Southside Fire officials say there are 311 passengers on board. They are all expected to stay on the train.
