WATCH: Video shows RTD train derailment

The R Line train derailed at the intersection of Exposition Avenue and Sable Boulevard on Wednesday, Sept. 21.

AURORA, Colo. — Newly released video shows the moment when a Regional Transportation District (RTD) light rail derailed in Aurora last week, sending three people to the hospital.

The R Line train derailed Wednesday at the intersection of Exposition Avenue and Sable Boulevard at about 3:45 p.m.

The Aurora Police Department (APD) said paramedics checked out 24 people riding on the train, including three people who were taken to the hospital and expected to be okay. 

A police camera at the intersection captured the moment the train derailed as it was coming around a curve. Watch below:  

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) said it is gathering information about the derailment. 

This is the second derailment at this intersection in the past four years. A woman was ejected when another R Line train derailed there during a snowstorm in 2019. Several other people were taken to the hospital with minor injuries after that derailment
