A low-speed collision between two trains left 17 people lightly injured Sunday evening in northeastern Italy, firefighters and the Italian railway company said. The accident caused significant traffic disruptions in the area. It occurred between a Frecciarossa TGV and a regional train on the Bologna-Rimini line, between Faenza and Forlì, firefighters indicated on X (formerly Twitter).
They clarified at 9:45 p.m. (8:45 p.m. GMT) that rescue operations were over. The accident resulted in “minor injuries, I would say bruises. There were no serious injuries, the collision took place at very low speed,” a Trenitalia spokesperson told the France-Press agency.
Investigations are underway to understand the causes of the accident, he said. Photos and videos posted on social networks show two trains against each other, with emergency services intervening on the side.
