Eighteen injured in train crash


EIGHTEEN passengers were injured in a train crash in a tunnel near Clot station in Barcelona. They include two babies, aged seven months and 18 months. The accident occurred last Thursday when one train shunted another from behind. One of them was an empty sleeper train which was going back to the garage, the other was a local Cercanias train.

Around 70 more passengers were evacuated for safety by firemen, regional police and Renfe staff.


This is the fifth train accident in Barcelona in less than a month. In this case, it appears that the emergency brakes failed.
