Fifty-four people were injured on Friday in a train crash at a station in the Austrian city of Salzburg, but there were no serious injuries, Austrian Federal Railways (OeBB) said.
The accident happened shortly before 5 am as a night train from Venice was being connected with a train coming from Zurich.
The locomotive that was moving the Venice train crashed into the standing Zurich carriages for reasons that are still unknown, according to an OeBB spokesman.
Most of the passengers were still sleeping, and the injuries were apparently caused by falling objects.
Injured people from both trains were brought to hospitals. The engine driver also needed medical assistance.
Both trains were carrying around 240 passengers.
