No serious injuries.
LIMA -- Two trains carrying tourists to the Inca city of Machu Picchu collided, causing delays on the rail network but no serious injuries, Peru's official Andina news agency reported.
The accident occurred Wednesday on the line that links the city of Cuzco with Machu Picchu, police 10th Division chief Mauro Medina told the news agency.
Perurail, which operates the only service to Machu Picchu, said the "Backpacker" train was returning from Machu Picchu to Cuzco when it collided with another train carrying about 29 tourists.
The cause of the accident has not been determined, Medina said.
Initial reports said the injuries were limited to some bruises and a blow a tourist sustained to a leg, Andina said.
PeruRail said in a statement that it immediately activated its emergency management system, coordinating the passengers' evacuation and providing medical assistance at the Ollantaytambo station.
The Inca citadel of Machu Picchu is one of Peru's most important tourist attractions, drawing thousands of tourists from around the world each year.
The 150-kilometer (93-mile) rail line from Cuzco provides essential service to the Inca ruins, and it is expected that other companies may soon begin offering service to the tourist attraction.
