Mossos d’Esquadra prepares a report with the reasons for the derailment of a wagon that collided with the driver’s cabin of a passenger train
- Arrangement One dead and 86 injured after a goods train derailed and collided with another passenger train in Sant Bois
Sant Boi’s Inquiry Court No. 5 investigates the train accident that took place at this town’s station this Monday, in which the driver of a passenger train was killed and 86 injured, two of whom are hospitalized for fractures.
Hours after the incident, a judicial delegation, which included the judge, lawyers for the Administration of Justice, the prosecutor and the coroner, traveled to the scene to remove the corpse. Firefighters had to cut a good portion of the wagon since the driver’s body was trapped.
Following these proceedings, the court is awaiting the report of the Special Unit of the Mossos d’Esquadra on the causes of this fatal accident to investigate whether there was an offense or negligence in the incident. This is the normal procedure in these cases.
The accident took place on Monday afternoon when a goods train derailed and rammed into the cabin of a passenger train leaving Sant Boi station. The driver died on the spot. Trains continue to operate between Mole Nou and Sant Boi de Llobregat, while several operators have removed accident vehicles on the Llobregat–Anoia de Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat (FGC) line. Cranes are being used to remove these damaged trains. Follow alternative road transport.
