  • Dying on the way to work is unacceptable: Investigation into cause of Milan train tragedy begins

An Italian passenger train derailed Thursday morning near Milan, killing three people and truly injuring no less than 13 others as a few passengers wound up noticeably caught in disfigured autos.

"It was commuter hour, the train was full, " Milan's deputy police chief Chiara Ambrosio was quoted as saying by broadcaster SkyTG24.

Firefighters are still trying to rescue several people trapped in one carriage.

BBC also reported that the Trenord train was heading to Milan from Cremona, in northern Italy.

At least two main cars from the middle of the train peeled off the rails but were still standing, albeit at an angle. On TV footage, helicopters could be seen taking the injured to nearby hospitals.


Trenord, the railway company operating the commuter trains, says it has stopped its service on the track between Milan and Treviglio. The accident caused disruption to rail traffic and some trains had to be re-routed.

It is not yet clear what caused the derailment.

"Everything was going well, suddenly the train started shaking, then we heard a bang and the carriages derailed", a survivor, who did not give his name, told ANSA.

This was the latest episode in a series of deadly incidents involving Italy's railway network.

In 2016, 23 people were killed when two trains collided on a single track in an olive grove in Puglia, south-eastern Italy.
