A Train Has Crashed At Richmond Station

A Train Has Crashed At Richmond Station

Monday morning's meeting was delayed after a train ploughed into a barrier at Richmond Station, injuring more than a dozen people.

Emergency services have responded to the scene, treating ten people for minor injuries, while two have sustained severe injuries.

Bray said five people are being transported to hospitals but the number of injured would likely rise.

Three choppers, 17 ambulance crews and Fire & Rescue teams raced to the scene.

The train hit a buffer stop at the end of the station's platform.

"Inside the train is like a bloodbath".

At least three people were initially trapped but all passengers have since been freed, the spokeswoman said, and the incident was still unfolding nearly an hour after it occurred.

The train suffered significant damage, and the carriages crumbled into each other.

Mattis also said that the majority of training for USA military reservists would be canceled during a shutdown. Despite the increased focus on China and Russia, Mattis said the Pentagon is aware other threats still remain.

Officials said it is too soon to determine the cause of the crash.

Television pictures showed the train had run into buffers at the end of the line. "There was a huge amount of dust", he said.

Asked whether he was comfortable with the Waratah train fleet, he said there was "ongoing regulation of the railway from both the national body and in terms of the work Sydney Trains do".

Sixteen passengers were injured in the incident, police said.

Train unions say they will push ahead with a planned strike next week after they failed to reach a deal with Sydney and New South Wales Trains management during late-night talks over pay and conditions.
