Milan train crash kills 3 and injures dozens

Milan rail crash: At least two dead and 10 seriously injured after passenger train derails in Italy

Cristina Corbetta, an official with the regional emergency services in Milan, told Sky TG24 that about 100 people had suffered minor injuries and 10 had been seriously hurt.

The accident happened at about 7 am (10am UAE time) near Segrate in Milan's northeastern suburbs.

At least two carriages from the middle of the train were involved in the derailment, and pictures from the scene showed them partially upturned off the rails.

Television images showed injured survivors being evacuated, the more serious receiving first aid in a field close by. On TV footage, helicopters could be seen taking the injured to nearby hospitals.

Witnesses said the train trembled for a few minutes before the accident.

The fire department said that its search-and-rescue teams were working at the site. Since then, the woman said there has been no reply on her daughter's telephone.

The Trenord commuter service had been travelling from Cremona, in the Lombardy region, towards Milan's Garibaldi station.

"It was the commuter hour, the train was full", Chiara Ambrosio, the deputy police chief of Milan, told news channel SkyTG24.

The head of Milan police said an investigation had been opened, with railway police interrogating the train driver.

The service's managing company Trenord announced on Twitter they would suspend travel on the line.
