Report: 40 Die As Argentine Train Plows Into Station

MSNBC.COM - A commuter train crashed in Buenos Aires on Wednesday and local media reported that at least 40 people had been killed, while officials said some 550 others had been injured.

Television station C5N quoted the head of the civil defense unit for the death toll.

The train was unable to stop and slammed into barriers inside a busy, centrally located station during the morning rush hour, officials said.

Hundreds of thousands of people travel into Argentina's capital city from the suburbs every day.

"There are people still trapped, people alive," Argentina's Transportation Secretary J.P. Schiavi, said, according to BBC News.

The BBC said local reporters had seen 12 bodies being taken from the wrecked train.

Alberto Crescenti, the city's emergency medical director, said there were fatalities and that at least 550 people were injured.

The commuter train came in too fast and hit the barrier at the end of the platform at about 12 mph, smashing the front of the engine and crunching the leading cars behind it.

One car penetrated nearly 20 feet into the next, Schiavi told reporters at the station.

Most damaged was the first car, where passengers make space for bicycles. Survivors told the TeleNoticias channel that many people were injured in a jumble of metal and glass. click here to read more
