Train derails in central Greece, two injured


Two women suffered minor injuries on Friday morning when a passenger train derailed in central Greece.

The train, which was traveling from the village of Lianokladi to Stylida, smashed into the wall of a building as it entered Larissa station.

Initial reports indicate an unknown person had switched the tracks, sending the train straight into the building.

One of the women injured, who also works for the Hellenic Railways Organization (OSE), was trapped in the carriage and was rescued by fire crews.

Both women were hospitalized as a precaution.
