Train accident in Argentina: It has been reported that 3 people died and more than 100 passengers were injured in the train accident in Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina.
It was reported that 3 people died and more than 100 passengers were injured in the train accident in Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina. Authorities announced that in the morning hours in the Moron area, a 2-storey suburban train crashed into another train stopping between 2 stations. It was learned that some passengers got out of the trains with their own means after the accident and informed the authorities. Passengers trapped in the wreckage were rescued by search and rescue teams sent to the scene. Railways Union leader Ruben Sobrero said that the two-storey commuter train had not been used for 6 months, and that it started to go back a few days ago due to the intensity.
It is not yet clear why the train in front was waiting between the two stations and why the other train failed to stop in time. Last year, Buenos Aires was the scene of a train accident in which 2 people died and about 51 people were injured. After the accident last year, President Cristina Fernandez had promised that those responsible would be brought to justice and that necessary measures would be taken to improve the safety of passengers on commuter trains. Fernandez dissolved the consortium of Mario and Sergio Crigliano brothers, which owns most of the companies responsible for maintaining railways in Argentina, and created a state-controlled consortium for the operation and maintenance of suburban lines.
