Buenos Aires, June 14: At least three people were killed and 55 others injured, five of them critically, in a train collision which occurred 30 km from the Argentine capital Thursday, local media reported.



According to initial reports, the accident occurred when a passenger train rammed into the rear end of a stationary train near the Castelar station, Xinhua reported.
