Oct. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Amtrak said two trains were involved in a low-speed collision inside the Oakland, California, station, resulting in the two lead engines of each train losing contact with the rail.
The two trains, the San Joaquin from Bakersfield to Oakland and the Coast Starlight from Los Angeles to Seattle, collided about 10 p.m. local time yesterday. There were 17 confirmed, non-life-threatening injuries to crew and passengers, Amtrak said in an e-mailed statement.
All rail service into and out of the Oakland station is temporarily suspended following the collision, Amtrak said.
