Spanish train kills 12 crossing tracks

Text size Aa Aa

At least 12 people have been killed after a high-speed train slammed into them as they were crossing railway tracks in northeastern Spain.
 
Most of the victims were young people, out celebrating an annual summer festival.
 
Having got off a train themselves at a small coastal station near Barcelona, they were crossing the line when another train arrived.
 
One woman claimed a pedestrian crossing was closed and with no light, there had been no warning that the second train was coming.
 
Early reports suggested the underpass had been closed or not well signed, but the local mayor said it had been open.
 
At least 13 people were injured in the late night accident. Some of them are in a critical condition.
 
Emergency services found dismembered bodies scattered at Castelldefels Playa station, in what is Spain’s worst rail tragedy since 2003.
