At least 125 injured as two trains collide in Amsterdam


Two trains have collided in Amsterdam, Dutch media reports. At least 125 people were injured in the accident, around 50 seriously.

A spokeswoman for Dutch Railways said the injuries mainly consist of broken bones and bruises. The trains collided between the Dutch capital's main station Amsterdam Central and Amsterdam Sloterdijk.

National Police Corps spokesman Ed Kraszewski told local reporters that some 70 people had minor injuries and some 44 were "seriously or very seriously injured." He said the victims sustained broken bones and neck injuries.

It was not immediately clear how the two trains ended up traveling toward one another on the same track. Kraszewski said the cause of the crash would be investigated.

Fleets of ambulances carried the injured away from the scene.
