Hours before, another incident occurred when a train with 161 passengers collided with the trailer of a truck at a level crossing in Talavera de la Reina.
The train that covers Extremadura-Madrid is again negative news, in this case sad. The second serious incident on Monday afternoon has ended with a deceased person being hit by the train Intercity Badajoz-Madrid that he left at 5:36 p.m. and that he is currently detained, since 8:10 p.m. between La Bazagona and Casatejada station, in the province of Cceres, where the event took place.
The person was on the road at the time of impact at an “unauthorized point of passage”, as confirmed by Adif. The accident train belongs to line 193, a Long Distance Intercity that connects Badajoz with the Madrid-Atocha station.
Renfe has activated the protocol established for these cases and has notified the emergency and security services. In addition, it has launched a reserve train from Madrid which is headed to Navalmoral de la Mata (Cceres) to carry out the transfer of passengers once the judicial authority authorizes it, as reported by the railway entity itself. Therefore, the line remains dead until the judge picks up the corpse. But, from Adif they point out that the train could be damaged as a result of the crash and the passengers would have to transfer to another vehicle.
SECOND INCIDENCE IN THE AFTERNOON
The death of this person, whose details are still unknown, occurred in the second incident of the afternoon on this railway line. The first occurred around 6:22 p.m. on the train that covered the Seville-Badajoz-Madrid route, when it collided with the trailer of a truck at a level crossing located between the stations of Talavera de la Reina (Toledo) and Talavera de la Reina and Calera-Chozas, with no injuries among the 161 passengers. Specifically, the collision occurred at a level crossing that crosses the line Madrid-Badajoz at kilometer 3 of the CM-4101 regional highway, within the municipality of Talavera de la Reina. The crash has not produced any injuries among railway personnel or among the 161 passengers traveling in the convoy, nor has it caused injuries to the truck driver, although the locomotive has been damaged and out of service.
After the incident, the convoy has not been able to continue the trip, so the 161 passengers remain in the place waiting for what Adif decides to do, which will probably transfer them by bus, the 112 has indicated. resume circulation.
An ambulance traveled preventively to the scene of the accident, in case it was necessary to attend to any of the passengers, as well as agents of the Civil Guard and the Local Police of Talavera de la Reina.
