QCOSTARICA – It’s been days since we’ve had a collision with the commuter train, the streak ending this Monday morning, in Pavas, San Jose. The crash left two people injured, according to authorities.

The injured were a passenger and the driver of the bus, both attended to on site by paramedics, neither requiring hospitalization.

The crash occurred minutes before 5:30am, the bus and train nearly empty – 10 passengers on the bus and six on the train –  in the area of downtown Pavas, a block from the Perimercado in Plaza Pavas.

Neither the train or bus were moving fast. A stop sign pole stopped the train from dragging the bus and a possible tragedy.

Train service on the Pavas line, including the train to Belen (uses the same line) was temporarily suspended while damage to the train was evaluated. The bus has to be towed from the scene.
