95 Metro rear-end crash victims still hospitalized

A total of 284 injured passengers have been treated at hospitals since a subway train rear-ended another on Metro Line 10 yesterday afternoon, Shanghai authorities said today.

By 9am today, 95 were still hospitalized. The others were discharged.

Metro Line 10 is closed today between the Yili Road Station and Sichuan Road North Station as the affected section is undergoing safety checks.

The closure put great pressure on road traffic during the rush hours. Traffic authorities deployed 100 buses to shuttle between the 12 closed stations to send commuters to work.

Many commuters said they had no idea of the Metro suspension, which was announced last night.
"I saw many people coming out of the Hailun Road Station to take buses this morning," said a woman surnamed Lu. "The Siping Road was in a great jam," she said.

It is still not known when Metro Line 10 will return to service.

A signaling glitch caused the rear-end accident near downtown Yuyuan Garden Station at about 2:50pm. A slowing train rammed into another that had stalled in the tunnel for nearly 40 minutes.
