An Amtrak passenger train with more than 200 passengers on board derailed in north Philadelphia on Tuesday night, causing multiple injuries, a city fire department supervisor said.

The official, who did not give his name, said there were "lots of injuries" at the scene of the wreck in the city's Port Richmond neighborhood along the Delaware River, but he did not elaborate.

An NBC affiliate in the city reported at least 50 people were injured when eight to 10 cars from the train derailed, citing officials.

Ten patients were taken to Temple University Hospital in the city, spokeswoman Giselle Zayon said, but she was unable to describe the extent of their injuries.
