Two Trains Collide Head-On In Switzerland, At Least 40 Injured

This is the third major European mass transportation crash in one week.

Posted on

The driver of one of the trains died in the crash and his body was found in the wreckage early Tuesday morning, BBC reports. The other driver is among the injured, too.

This is the third mass transportation accident in Europe in the past week after a bus crash in Italy left 38 dead on Sunday and a train derailment in Spain killed 79 last week.
