MADRID: A suburban train bumped into the back of another at Barcelona's main rail station, lightly injuring 22 people on Friday, officials said.
One train entering Sants de Barcelona station collided with the other, which was stationary, at 10:05am (0805 GMT), said a spokeswoman for ADIF, Spain's rail infrastructure operator.
"Twenty-two people were injured... The rest of the passengers were evacuated and of the 22 injured, emergency services treated 10. The rest left on foot," she said.
The moving train was going at a "very low" speed as it had slowed down to enter the station, she added.
ADIF and the state train operator RENFE "have opened an investigation. They are questioning the driver and examining the data," the spokeswoman said.
Spain suffered its worst rail crash in 70 years on July 24, when a speeding train tore off the tracks and crashed into a siding outside the northwestern city of Santiago de Compostela.
That crash killed 79 people and injured about 180.
