At least 44 people were injured when two commuter trains collided head-on near the station of Granges-pres-Marnand, about 8 km (5 miles) south of Payerne in Switzerland at around 6:45 p.m. on Monday evening, July 29, 2013.
5 of them were critically injured.
The trains were on a route between Payerne and Lausanne.
One locomotive’s driver was missing after the crash.
Authorities are still investigating the caused the crash.
This train accident came just days after 79 people were killed in a high-speed train derailment in Spain and 17 days after another train accident in France killing 6 people.
Europe is now facing the worst floods in seventy years.
Flood waters rise across sections of Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and the Czech Republic.

Gotthard Base Tunnel (GBT) is the longest train tunnel in the world and it is located in Switzerland.
The tunnel is being constructed beneath the Swiss Alps and is still under construction.
It is scheduled to become operational at the end of 2016.
The length of the tunnel is 57 KM.
Seikan Tunnel in Japan used to be the longest train tunnel; now it is the second longest after Gotthard Base Tunnel.
Here are some REUTERS’s photos of the Gotthard Base Tunnel :
High wire artist Freddy Nock from Switzerland is trying to to set a new world record by doing seven summits in Germany, Austria and Switzerland in seven days.
His “7 records within 7 days” is part of a UNESCO charity event.
I think that what he is doing is very dangerous.
Can he do it?
Mount Feuerkogel, Austria:
Glacier Express derailed in the Swiss Alps on Friday, July 23, 2010.
It happened near the town of Fiesch and the mouth of the Aletsch glacier.
The Aletsch glacier is Europe’s largest icemass.
The train was on a journey between Zermatt and St. Moritz.
1 person was killed and 42 people were injured.
Train accident is very rare in Switzerland.
Glacier Express is a very popular tourist train in Switzerland.
It has very big windows so that the passengers can see the beautiful Alps mountains, glaciers, streams and other wonderful things around.
The Glacier Express is known for its majestic mountain climbs.
It is called the “slowest express train in the world”.
It travels at an average speed of 18 mph (30 kph).
This is another disaster.
On Monday a speeding express train collided in India.
Most airports in Europe are still closed and some may not be open on Monday.
