Argentine Commuter Train Crash Injures 129

A Buenos Aires commuter train has collided with another train in the Argentine capital, injuring at least 129 people. An estimated 65 passengers were hospitalized, mostly for cuts and bruises.

Officials say the accident took place on a bridge Thursday when one train was stopped at a railway signal and was rear-ended by the second train.

But, they say the second train was traveling slowly due to repairs on the track, minimizing the injuries.

The cause of the accident is under investigation.
