Train collision at Hague…..

A train partially derailed near The Hague in the early hours of Tuesday, sending at least one carriage into a field next to the tracks and injuring 30 passengers, several of whom were badly, according to Dutch rescue services. 

One of the individuals was seen on television using improvised bridges to cross a canal that ran alongside the railway and approach the derailed train in the pitch black. The railway cars’ windows were shattered in large numbers. It was unclear if that occurred during the collision or as passengers were attempting to flee. 

A “calamity hospital” was opened in the center of the city of Utrecht to treat injured passengers after they were treated in residences close to the rails and taken in a fleet of ambulances to hospitals.
