Amtrak Train Derailment

Monday, December 18, 2017

Dear Campus Community,

As many of you may have heard, an Amtrak train derailed over I-5 this morning in DuPont. This event is still unfolding and much is unknown, but several people are confirmed deceased and it is being treated as a potential mass casualty incident.

This happened during the morning commute and many SPSCC employees commute down from Pierce County. As far as we know, all of our staff are reported to be safe.

We will post any updates relevant to the SPSCC community as an update to this article.  Please contact Samantha Soto in Human Resources with additional questions or if you need to access to any resources.

Our thoughts and condolences go out to all of those affected by this tragic incident.
