More than a dozen people injured at a train crash in Richmond

Brett Saunders witnessed the crash just before 10am, which he described as "horrifying". Three helicopters, 17 ambulance crews, and fire and rescue teams were deployed to escort passengers off the train.

"I understand that the train on Platform 2 at Richmond has hit the buffers pretty hard", he told reporters.

An investigation is under way after more than a dozen people were injured in a Sydney train crash.

All passengers are off the train, emergency services are still on the scene.

The cause of the accident at the Richmond Railway station in the northwest of the city remains unclear.

An ambulance spokesman said one 31-year-old woman suffered a fractured clavicle.

Paramedics who attended the scene treated some of the injured in a nearby park, police confirmed.


"I was straight onto the train as soon as I seen people were injured".

"My first thoughts are those people who have suffered some sort of injury".

The meeting comes a week before a planned train strike on January 29 when more than 9000 train workers will stop work for 24 hours as they push for a six per cent pay rise and improved conditions.

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

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau, Office of Transport Safety and the Office of National Rail Safety Regulator are investigating the incident.

Sydney Trains chief executive Howard Collins said on Monday afternoon that "it is too early to speculate" as to the cause of the accident.

A number of injured passengers and two employees, including the driver, have been treated.
