More from the Port Huron Times Herald:

Crews are investigating the scene just south of 22nd and Railroad streets in Port Huron where an Amtrak locomotive derailed this morning. The trailing locomotive derailed shortly after departure about 6:20 a.m. from the station on 16th Street, said Marc Magliari, Amtrak spokesman. There were 14 passengers on the train, but there were no injuries. The locomotive is expected to be disconnected from the rest of the train soon so it can continue on to Chicago, Magliari said.
