In Croatia, a passenger and a freight train collided, resulting in deaths and casualties. The accident occurred last Friday at about 20:30. The director of the Croatian Institute of Emergency Medicine, Maja Grba Bujević, said that eight ambulance crews were at the scene within 35 minutes after the accident, and then four more crews from neighbouring counties were called. Eleven victims found on the field were treated.

As a result of the collision, three people died, and there were foreigners among the injured. Two of the victims have serious injuries, the rest have lesser ones. The lives of the victims are not in danger.

It is reported that the accident occurred about 10 minutes before the final destination of the passenger train in the city of Novska when it ran into a freight train. The impact was so strong that the passenger train cars flew off the track.

"We assume that there may be more victims, because some parts of the train are far away, not on the track," Prime Minister Andrej Plenković said.

On Saturday, the investigation continued at the site of the train accident. Together with the state prosecutor's office, Tomislav Antun Biber, the chief investigator of railway accidents of the Air, Rail and Maritime Accident Investigation Agency, is also at the scene of the accident.

"It is obvious that a passenger train collided with a freight train. According to some reports, the passenger train did not stop at the stop signal," he said.

The investigation will establish why the train did not stop and how the collision happened.
