(KPTV) -

At least six people were killed and dozens more were hospitalized after an Amtrak train derailed south of Tacoma Monday morning, and now blood centers are asking for the public's help.

Train 501, bound for Portland from Seattle with approximately 83 people on board, fell onto Interstate 5 in DuPont, Washington.

Dozens of people, victims on the train and motorists, were transported to area hospitals.

In response to the hospitalizations, Bloodworks Northwest called for donations.

Anyone interested in donating blood can schedule an appointment at BloodworksNW.org
