Nov. 17 (UPI) -- Amtrak canceled the Wolverine Train 352 and several other trains Friday due to track repairs needed after the 352 train derailed in west Michigan Thursday night, slightly injuring 11 people.
The train hit a vehicle on the tracks in southwest Michigan en route to Chicago. The vehicle obstructing the tracks was in New Buffalo, Michigan roughly an hour east of Chicago and west of Niles, Mich.
