Thirty-five commuters were injured, two of them seriously, when a passenger train derailed in Germiston in Gauteng.
The passenger train went off the tracks between the Nights and Ravensklip Stations. Ambulances transported the injured to hospital.
Metrorail Lilian Mofokeng says there is only one coach that derailed and there is a track that has been damaged that they are trying to repair.
A spokesman for Netcare 911 says it’s still unsure why the train derailed, but police are investigating.
