08:56, September 16, 2011

BUENOS AIRES, Sept. 15 (Xinhua) -- A collision between a streetcar and a bus here Thursday has injured at least 90 people.

The accident took place in the west of the city when a No. 76 bus was propelled into a cement mixer truck after being hit from behind by the streetcar.

Alberto Crescenti, chief of the city's emergency services, told reporters the accident caused no fatalities or serious injuries, and the injured had been taken to nearby hospitals.

An investigation was under way to determine the cause of the collision, which resulted in a temporary suspension of light-rail services.

It is the second major accident in the same area following one involving a bus and a commuter train two days ago, which claimed 11 lives and injured 228 others.
