Passengers said that the derailed cars on the track near Joplin, Montana, have left some passengers trapped inside. 

One passenger said she heard a boom and felt the carriage 'pitching violently side-to-side,' according to CBS. 

Another passenger Megan Vandervest was asleep when the train derailed. 

'My first thought was that we were derailing because, to be honest, I have anxiety and I had heard stories about trains derailing,' she told The New York Times. 'My second thought was that’s crazy. We wouldn’t be derailing. Like, that doesn’t happen.'

She described the feeling as 'extreme turbulence on a plane,' but was among the lucky ones whose train car stayed on the tracks.   

However, the cars behinds hers weren't. Three cars back, was completely off the track, the one in front of that was toppled over, while the one behind her was tilted, she told the Times. 

There were approximately 147 passengers and 13 crew members onboard.

'We're going our best,' the spokesperson from the senior center said.

The state's medical supplies are low and beds are limited in hospitals due to COVID-19, but nursing homes have limited capacity.
