Q COSTA RICA – A train derailment on the San Jose – Pavas – Belen line Friday afternoon left six people pretty banged up, of which four were taken to the Trauma Hospital; the others refused medical attention.
The Apollo powered two car commuter train had left the Pacifico station in San Jose at 3:30pm, on its way to Belen, when 20 minutes later it derailed in the Maria Reina neighbourhood (before the Maseca factory crossing) in Pavas.
At the time of the derailment the train was carrying some 60 passengers.
