Metrorail investigating cause of PTA North train collision


JOHANNESBURG – Metrorail is now investigating the cause of a train accident in Pretoria North on Monday night in which over 100 people were injured.

Twenty of the passengers sustained serious injuries.

It’s understood two trains crashed head on.

It’s not yet clear how two trains crashed on the same track at the Lynn Ross Station in Rosslyn.

Metrorail’s Lillian Mofokeng says technicians worked through the night and the train is now operational again.

“The commuters that were injured have been taken to various hospitals across Pretoria and most of them have since been reported to have been discharged already. We’re only left with 38 commuters that are still in hospitals.”
