BUENOS AIRES – At least 45 people were injured Friday in a crash of two passenger trains in the Argentine capital, medical authorities and the Fire Department said.
The accident occurred shortly before noon, when a moving train crashed into one that was stopped on a bridge in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Palermo.
The head of the emergency medical system, Alberto Crescenti, said that between 45 and 50 people were taken to area hospitals with varying contusions and traumas, but, he said, at the moment none of the injured passengers’ lives appears to be in danger.
One of the most complicated cases is a woman 7-months pregnant who is suffering from multiple traumas, while another two people were struck with “serious blows,” Crescenti said. EFE
