Trains crash in Switzerland

  • There have been train accidents in Canada, France and Spain this month. Now its Switzerland, where two commuter trains collided head-on between the cities of Lucens and Payerne. 

    As a result 35 were injured and five have been critically injured. A Swiss Federal Railways spokesman said they don't know the cause of the crash yet and that "there is currently no train service between these two cities until midnight tonight at least."

    The driver of one of the trains who had been trapped in the wreckage was rescued but the police haven't commented on his condition. Eyewitnesses told a Swiss newspaper about the impact was violent enough to explode windows.
