An Amtrak train struck a log truck at a crossing Tuesday morning, derailing all 10 cars and the engine and injuring 10 people, emergency officials said.

The train was traveling from New York to Miami when it derailed at 9:07 a.m. about 35 miles north of Savannah, Ga., said Amtrak spokesman Bill Schulz There were 103 passengers and 20 crew members on board.
