More than 150 people were injured, but not seriously, when two passenger trains carrying passengers to Barcelona collided early Wednesday, Spanish officials said.
Emergency services said medics treated 155 people and 39 were taken to medical centers for further treatment. Reported injuries were limited to knocks and bruises.
The collision took place near the town of Montcada i Reixac, 30 minutes north of Barcelona. Many people make the daily commute to and from the city to work in Spain’s second largest city.
According to the Spanish civil defense, one train came to a halt after another train failed to brake in time and collided from behind. There were about 800 passengers in two trains. No arrests have been made, officials said.
Transport Minister Raquel Sanchez said the cause of the accident is being investigated.
