Passenger trains collide in Pretoria
Several people were injured when two trains collided on the railway line between Cor Delfos and Saulsville, near Pretoria, this morning.
Tshwane emergency services spokesperson Johan Pieterse said one of the trains was stationary on the track when it was hit by the other.
“A few people were seriously injured, and the driver of the one of the trains was critically injured. He is still trapped inside the train,” Pieterse said.
“People should be advised that the line between Cor Delfos and Saulsville has been closed due to the accident,” he said.
He could not say how many people were injured and said more information would be available later in the day.
