Amtrak Train 91 was carrying 139 passengers and eight crew members to Miami from NY when it hit the freight train at about 2.35 am local time (0735 GMT) near Columbia, South Carolina's state capital, and derailed, the railroad said in a statement.

Sumwalt said that the switch was padlocked to send trains on the main line to the side track, which conductors are supposed to do when they change lines.
"It's a terrible thing to see, to understand the force involved", he said after touring the scene.
The locomotives of both trains were crumpled on impact, and the Amtrak engine ended up on its side.
Federal investigators are trying to figure out why a switch was in the wrong position, sending a passenger train into a freight train in SC, killing two Amtrak employees and injuring more than 100 others.
The statement continued, "The lead engine derailed, as well as some passenger cars". "CSX owns and controls the Columbia Subdivision where the accident occurred".
The number of injured rose to 116 from a previous count of 70, said Lexington County spokesman Harrison Cahill.
Three of the injured were admitted to hospital, officials said.
A Federal Railroad Administration Investigative team was also on the scene in SC to help establish what happened. "Thank you to our incredible First Responders for the work they've done!"
Sumwalt said they've recovered a forward facing video recorder, and that's already been sent back to Washington, D.C. The event data recorders, commonly called the "black box" devices, have not yet been recovered. Everyone was off the train, and the Red Cross was assisting them, the department said on its website.
The wreck came just days after a chartered train for Republican members of Congress heading to a retreat collided with a garbage truck in rural Virginia, killing the truck driver. The rest had minor injuries such as cuts, bruises or whiplash, authorities said.
"People aren't focused on it until we have tragedies", Schiavo said.
Investigators are continuing to investigate the cause of a train crash that killed two and injured more than 100 in SC over the weekend.
He said the question for investigators is why that happened.
