A train carrying local people collided with a delivery van in the Swiss Alps on Monday, inuring several passengers , police told AFP.
“One person has been seriously hurt. The individual has been flown by helicopter to the university hospital in Bern,” the capital, a police spokesman in the mountainous Valais region said. The crash between the van and the tourist train which winds its way through Valais’ snowy mountains occurred in the village of Moerel.
Two carriages derailed as a result.
It was not the first accident involving a tourist train in the region. Two years ago, in July 2010, a 64-year-old Japanese woman died and dozens were injured in the derailing of Valais’ Glacier Express, which runs between Zermatt and St. Moritz – a few kilometres from the site of Monday’s collision.
