Commuter train hits buffers in Sydney injuring 12 passengers

Sydney Trains CEO Howard Collins has confirmed it hit the buffer at the end of the train line on platform 2 at Richmond station.

NSW police said no one was trapped in the train, as was also initially reported widely.

East Market Street is now closed between March and Windsor Streets to assist emergency services. Three helicopters, 17 ambulance crews, and fire and rescue teams were deployed to escort passengers off the train.

Sydney Trains cancelled services between Richmond and Clarendon stations as a result of the incident.

Triage area has been set up at the scene to assess and treat injured passengers.

Most of the injured were discharged from hospital by Monday evening; however, several were still being treated.

Three people have been taken to Westmead Hospital, according to ABC News. "We don't believe any of those are life threatening or serious", he said.

The caller said the train came in at speed and hit the buffer and rebounded.

A number of passengers and two Sydney Trains employees, including the driver, were treated at the scene.

Officials said it is too soon to determine the cause of the crash.

"It's all chaos here", another caller, Steve, told the station.

Train unions say they will push ahead with a planned strike next week after they failed to reach a deal with Sydney and New South Wales Trains management during late-night talks over pay and conditions.

Television pictures showed the train had run into buffers at the end of the line.
