Two regional trains collided in Berlin late on Monday evening, leaving one person injured according to the city fire department.

The Deutsche Bahn train hit another train just before 11 pm in the Friedrichsfelde district. Because there were no passengers on board, only one driver suffered head injuries, the fire department reported.

One of the trains was waiting for a signal at a junction when the regional train hit it head on. Authorities are investigating the incident to determine whether the driver overlooked a stop signal.
