80 Injured As Trains Clash In South Africa

About 80 people were Tuesday injured when two trains crashed into each other in South Africa’s eastern coastal city of Durban, AFP quoted rescuers as saying.

“There was a train collision in Berea, Durban. The two trains collided and there are about 80 people who are injured. No fatalities have been reported so far,” said Luyanda Majija, spokeswoman for the ER24 rescue service.

Another ER24 spokesman, Russel Meiring, said the crash by two Metrorail trains was head-on, and that none of the injuries were critical. [AFP]
