The Galician regional government said the accident Friday occurred at 9:30 a.m. (0730 GMT) in Porrino, about 450 kilometers (280 miles) northwest of Madrid.

It said emergency services dispatched doctors on helicopters to the scene.

The train was travelling from Vigo to Porto, in neighboring Portugal.
