Commuter train crash in Milan kills at least 4

At least two people have been killed 10 seriously wounded and several more are reported to be trapped after a train derailed around 40km outside Milan on Thursday morning

"There now are three dead, five severely injured and eight injured in "code yellow", all of which in hospital", the body representing the Interior Ministry in Milan said.

"It was commuter hour, the train was full", Chiara Ambrosio, the deputy police chief of Milan, told broadcaster SkyTG24.

Firefighters have been seen helping dazed passengers from the bloody-spattered carriages in horrific scenes.

The injured were rushed to a nearby hospital for medical assistance.

A number of rail services in Milan, Italy, have been delayed or suspended in view of the Milan train derailment.

Two carriages came off the rails, coming to rest at an angle.

The service was on its way from Cremona to the Garibaldi Port station in Milan when it came off the tracks around 7am local time according to journalists on the scene

The train's operator, Trenord, said in a tweet that a "technical problem" caused the accident.

RFI said it had detected some structural collapse in the track but that it was still unclear whether this was a cause or a outcome of the accident.

Italian agency ANSA reported the commuter train that was travelling from Cremona to Milan.

An initial inspection by Italian Railways indicates there was a break of about 8 inches in one of the tracks about a mile from where the train derailed.

Regional connections were halted in the morning, while fast trains between Milan and Venice in northeast Italy were not disrupted, Milan prefect's office also said in a statement. In 2016, two trains collided while traveling on a single track in southeast Ppulia region, leaving 23 people dead.
