One person killed, more than 100 injured in a train crash near Tembisa

Two trains collided between Kaalfontein and Tembisa this afternoon.

The two trains were driving to different directions using one track.

According to EWN reporter Clement Manyathela, paramedics are treating more than 150 injured people at the scene, and transferring them to the hospital.

I see about 50 to 60 survivors of the accident, and paramedics are treating those that are severely injured.

But what paramedics are describing as 'walking patients' are being taken in a small journey to some of the ambulances and transported to hospitals around Ekurhuleni.

We know one person has died. But in terms of injuries paramedics are saying between 100 and 150. But I have seen a number of people. I could say it's just over 200.
