Wreckage of Shanghai subway crash

Shanghai subway trains collide injuring more than 200 passengers

Two Shanghai subway trains collided today injuring more than 200 passengers and critically injuring 20.

The crash comes after a collision between two bullet trains in eastern China in July, which killed 40 people.

Today’s crash on one of the city’s newest subways, came after Shanghai Shentong Metro Group said the line was having delays due to equipment problems. Shanghai, a city of 23 million, has rapidly expanded its subway system in recent years and some lines have seen problems with faulty signalling, windows shattering, doors not opening properly and poorly trained train operators.

Media reported that more than 260 passengers were injured, and 20 critically in the subway crash.
