Swiss train collision caused by stop signal being ignored: operator

ZURICH (Reuters) - A collision between two Swiss passenger trains that injured several people last week was caused when one of the trains ignored a stop signal, rail operator SBB said on Friday.

An express train destined for Schaffhausen near the German border was in collision with a commuter train at a switch in Rafz, around 30 km (18 miles) from Zurich, and then derailed. Six people were injured in the collision.
