WARSAW — At least six people were killed and dozens more injured in a head-on train crash in Szczekociny, southern Poland, late Saturday, regional governor Zymunt Lukaszczyk said.
“We can confirm six people have died. It’s difficult to give an accurate toll,” he said.
Local police told AFP about fifty people had been injured. Polish media reports spoke of sixty injured, including thirty seriously.
The head-on collision took place at 2100 hrs local time (2000 GMT) between two trains travelling on the same track, a Polish railways official said. One was en route to the southern city of Krakow from the capital Warsaw, while the other was travelling to the capital from the south-eastern city of Przemysl.
Initial images of the crash shown on TVN24 showed mangled wreckage. One survivor told channel they had seen dead bodies and others still alive but pinned down inside the train wrecks.
