Barcelona Train Crash Leaves Multitude Injured


At least 50 people were injured after a commuter train in Barcelona crashed during the morning rush on Friday as it entered one of the city’s main stations but there were no reports of fatalities. Officials have opened an investigation into the cause of the crash.One person is seriously injured, 19 people are in a less serious condition, including the train conductor, and another 34 people suffered minor injuries, the emergency services said.A member of the regional Catalan government, told reporters that the casualty toll was not bigger because the crash had “luckily” occurred as the train approached the station at a reduced speed. Some of those who were injured, however, suffered injuries because they had gotten out of their seats to disembark as the train reached the station.Photo Credit: Getty
