GENEVA (AP) — Two passenger trains collided Thursday morning near a station in northern Switzerland, injuring 17 people, police said.
The accident near Neuhausen station occurred shortly after 7.30 a.m. (0630 GMT), said Patrick Caprez, a spokesman for police in Schaffhausen canton (state). Nine of the injured people were taken to nearby hospitals; Caprez didn't have details on the injuries but said none of their lives were believed to be in danger.
It wasn't immediately clear what caused the collision.
A locomotive for one of the trains — a double-decker passenger train — derailed.
Rail traffic in two directions from Schaffhausen, a town on Switzerland's northern border with Germany, was interrupted and buses were being used instead.
