In Argentina, at least seven people died and more than 200 were injured when a commuter train has collided with a local bus at a level crossing at rush hour.

The crash was caught on a security camera.

The bus driver is among those who died.

Mixed stories emerged in the immediate aftermath of the crash in Buenos Aires — including that the bus had tried to rush across the tracks, and that the barriers were not working properly.

It took hours to free the remaining victims from the crash site, authorities said. 

The impact of the train reduced the bus to a fraction of its width, Euronews reports, wedging it up against the train station platform.
