7 injured in rail crossing crash

Train collided with lorry on level crossing in Nangis, Seine-et-Marne

SEVEN people have been injured - one seriously - after a train collided with a lorry that was stuck at a level crossing near Paris.

Five carriages of the Intercités train, which was travelling from Belfort, derailed at Nangis in the Seine-et-Marne, about 70km south-east of the capital, also hitting a tractor and a car.

The accident happened at about 8.40 this morning and gendarmes and firefighters are on the scene.

Passengers took to Twitter to share pictures of the crash scene.
