(KMOV) -- Five cars on an Amtrak train derailed Sunday night near Granite City.

Authorities said 4 of the 63 passengers were taken to the hospital via ambulance to Gateway Regional Medical Center with minor injuries, but many were shaken up. The train cars derailed near Niedringhaus Ave and Benton St.

Emergency crews had to help passengers out of train cars and then get them through a steep ravine. Passengers then walked and waited on the tracks, waiting to find out what would happen next. Busses were brought in to shuttle passengers.
