Two people were killed when a passenger train derailed between Australia's two largest cities on Thursday. Doctors said many were being examined for injuries.
Emergency services said the train from Melbourne to Sydney had left the tracks near the city of Wallan, about 50 kilometers north of Melbourne.
Police confirmed that two people were killed in the accident.
Ambulance Victoria said one person had been hospitalized and was in a stable condition while 11 others had been treated for minor injuries.
Images posted on social media showed carriages on their side and at angles next to the tracks.
"Things were flying off our tables, people were moving, luggage was flying," said Scott Rickard, a passenger on the train, to ABC public broadcaster.
Her car ended at an angle, but most of her fellow passengers had minor injuries, she said.
At the time of the accident, around 160 people were on the train around 7:45 p.m. (0845 GMT).
More than twenty emergency vehicles were used on site.
