Train apparently ran red light in Oakland Amtrak crash
The crash took place around 10 p.m. Wednesday when a passenger train traveling an estimated 15 to 20 mph ran a red signal and struck a train that was at a stop and unloading passengers.
All the injuries were said to be minor and non-life-threatening.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, most of the injured were passengers on the stopped train.
Service at the station remained suspended Thursday morning. Amtrak officials said they and the owner of the tracks, Union Pacific Freight Railroad, will work with federal officials to investigate the crash.
It is the second incident in two weeks in which Amtrak passengers were injured in the Bay Area.
On Sept. 30, 37 passengers and two crew members were injured when an Amtrak train collided with a truck at a crossing near Brentwood where there were no lights or gates
