CHICAGO (Reuters) - An Amtrak train derailed outside Union Station in Chicago on Monday but there were no immediate reports of any injuries, a local NBC affiliate reported.

It was the second derailment involving an Amtrak train in the last few days. On Friday, an Amtrak Acela train derailed and sideswiped a New Jersey commuter train at New York City's Penn Station, causing minor injuries.
