Railway authorities and the Policia de Transito were able to clear a path for the train so as not to affect morning service.

This is the second collission in less than 24 hours.

Tuesday afternoon the Cartago train derailed some 200 metres of the Tres Rios station, in La Union. The derailment caused affected service for at least three hours.
