ALBAWABA - Two commuter trains collided during rush hour outside the Spanish city of Barcelona, lightly injuring at least 155 people. 

The European television news network Euronews quoted Catalonia's civil protection authorities as saying the emergency medical service has treated at least 155 people, but none with serious injuries. It said three people with minor injuries have been transferred to hospital.

Officials said that the collision occurred on a train line in Montcada i Reixac, a town just north of Barcelona.

A train traveling towards Barcelona hit the rear of another train also heading to the city at Montcada station, according to the state railway company Renfe.
