Truck in train collision - several injured

Several people have been injured after a commuter train was involved in a collision with a truck at a level crossing on the Roslagsbanan line in Rydbo, northern Stockholm, shortly after seven o'clock this morning.

Police say the train driver has been seriously injured and was cut out of the wreckage and taken to hospital along with three passengers who have minor injuries.

Investigators are at the scene to determine the cause of the accident but reports suggest that the truck somehow became stuck on the tracks and the driver managed to get out of his cab before it was hit by the train.
