Two trains running on the same track collided head-on in the Polish village of Szczekociny on Saturday night killing 14 people and seriously injuring more than 60 people.

Up to 350 passengers were on board the two trains at the time of the accident at 9:00 pm local time (20:00 GMT).

The accident occurred when a train moving north from Przemysl to Warsaw rammed a southbound train from Warsaw to Krakow.

Hundreds of firemen and police personnel were involved in the rescue efforts to save injured passengers.

An investigation has been ordered into the cause of the crash.
