Original Story:

Seven people have been taken to local hospitals after the Frisco Silver Dollar Line at Silver Dollar City derailed early Wednesday evening.

Witnesses say the passenger train tipped over around 6 p.m.

In videos posted by witnesses on social media, you can see one car upright and others tipped over on the ground. You can also see wheels on the tracks without the cars.

The Stone County Sheriff’s Department, Southern Stone County Fire Protection District, the Highway Patrol and Mercy Ambulances responded to the scene.

Stone County’s Emergency Management Director Tom Martin originally confirmed four people were taken to hospitals with non life-threatening injuries, but Silver Dollar City later released a statement confirming six guests and one employee were transported.

Investigators from the Division of Fire Safety have been called to the scene to find out what happened.
