A London train slammed over a barrier at a popular stop, injuring two people. A medical helicopter was rushed to the location.

Two people were injured after a train crashed with a barrier at a London Overground station.

The London Fire Brigade (LFB) and London Ambulance Service (LAS) were alerted to Enfield Town station in north London shortly after 8 a.m. when a passenger train derailed after hitting a buffer stop at the end of the track.

According to the LFB, there were about 50 passengers on board, and two people were treated by doctors for “minor injuries.”

In dramatic shots, the train is lifted to an upright position, with the front end balancing precariously above the rails.

The train skidded to a halt inches from colliding with the glass window of the station ticket office.

Three fire engines and two fire rescue vehicles were deployed to the scene by the fire department.

According to the LFB’s spokesman, “Firefighters were called to Enfield Town Railway Station this morning to deal with a derailed train.

“An eight-car passenger train derailed after hitting the station’s buffers.

“Before the Brigade arrived, TfL and station personnel had evacuated almost 50 individuals from the train.

“At the site, London Ambulance Service crews treated two people for minor injuries.”

The Brigade was dispatched at 0827 and is currently on scene. Three fire engines and two fire rescue teams are already on the site.” The train’s driver is being treated for shock, according to Network Rail. Ellie Burrows, Network Rail’s Anglia route director, said: “A slow-moving train collided with the buffer stops at Enfield Town around 8.20 a.m.

“The driver is being treated for shock, and there have been a few minor injuries.

“Emergency services, including the British Transport Police, are on the scene, and an investigation is underway,” the statement states.

According to Station Commander Jim O’Neill, a recovery operation has been launched.

“The train has run up over the top of the buffers at the end of the line station,” he remarked.

“Firefighters searched the train thoroughly to ensure there were no additional people on board.”

“Crews are currently assisting station workers in making the location secure, following which a recovery operation will be carried out.”

“According to the London Ambulance Service, one ambulance crew, an emergency planning officer, a clinical team manager, two incident response officers, medics in cars, and a hazardous area response team were deployed to the London station.

This has been accomplished by firefighters. “Summary of Brinkwire News.”
