The AP, citing an anonymous official, said the train may have struck an object on the track before it derailed.
DuPont Mayor confirms ‘mass casualty incident’ training was underway when Amtrak derailment occurred By Shepard Ambellas - December 19, 2017 Just like 9/11 and the London bombing of 2007, the training drill somehow went live creating the exact scenario officials were enacting at the time.Ironically, City Mayor Mike Courts and his team, along with numerous agencies, were conducting a training session for a ‘mass casualty incident’ closeby when the Amtrak Cascades derailment occurred killing six and sending over 70 others to the hospital. According to the report, ‘many agencies’ were in the area planning their day for the exact same scenario as it actually played out in real-time.
Planning commissioner Beth Elliott was removed from her volunteer role for posting what Mayor Mike Courts feels was misleading information on Facebook.

I find it a bit more peculiar that also not even 2 months prior to the derailment, Dupont major fired Planning Commissioner for simply sharing controversial or cofidential city plans on FB:
