At least 22 people were injured after a regional passenger train and a locomotive collided head-on in northeastern Spain on Monday, officials said, AP reported.
Officials said Monday 22 people were hospitalised after a regional passenger train and a locomotive collided head-on in northeastern Spain.
According to the regional government of northeast Catalonia, five of the 22 were in serious condition.
The collision reportedly took place late Sunday near the town of Vila-Seca, south of Barcelona.
Spain's Adif railway infrastructure company informed that the freight train engine had a brake problem that lead to the accident.
No casualties have been reported yet, while an investigation has been launched.
In a similar incident that occurred in May last month, the driver of the train was killed and at least 85 were injured in a collision between a freight train and a passenger train at the Sant Boi de Llobregat station in Barcelona in May this year.
