Collision

As is known, two trains crashed on Tuesday morning near the famed ruins of Machu Picchu, leaving people wounded.

As stated by one of the passengers, one of the trains had stopped on 82 km of the railroad to Machu Picchu because of a protest by domestic tourists, who blocked the railway track.

The collision happened a few minutes after the unit resumed its journey —once the protest was cleared— when another train hit it from behind on 88 km of the railroad.
