A subway train derailed near the Distor 2 subway station in Bucharest on Monday morning. No victims were reported as all 150 commuters were evacuated safely to the station several hundred meters away from the scene of the accident.

The subway police was sent to investigate the situation while a technical commission is due to identify the causes of the accident.

“Nothing sensational - it’s just a technical malfunction. But yes, the subway train schedule was affected”, Gabriel Sburlan, deputy manager of Metrorex, the company managing the subways system, told the Realitatea TV news channel.
