One killed, 22 injured in Austrian train collision

Vienna – Two passenger trains collided Monday in central Austria, killing one person and injuring 22 others, the police told AFP.

Police said the accident happened a little before 13:00 (12:00 GMT) at Niklasdorf station in Styria province. The cause of the crash has yet to be determined.

A train company spokesperson said the trains involved were a local service and an intercity train from Graz, which is about 40km from Niklasdorf, to Saarbruecken in Germany.

In December eight people were injured in a train derailment near the capital Vienna.
