A high-speed passenger train has crashed in Italy, with its engine and some cars running off the tracks. Two railway workers were killed, including the driver, while dozens of passengers were injured.

The train derailed shortly after 5:30am local time on Thursday in northern Italy’s Lodi Province, when it was traveling from Milan to Salerno.

It is not clear what caused the derailment, which led to the engine and at least two passenger cars being overturned.

Firefighters and medics were deployed to the scene. Railroad traffic on the line has been suspended, and all trains have been rerouted to other lines.
