Train collides with bus

A packed San José-bound bus collided with a passenger train Monday morning and 20 persons suffered injuries.

The mishap took place at a crossing in Barrio Cuba east of the complex of municipal cemeteries. The bus was bound from Alajuelita. Train crossings in the Central Valley do not have gates that descend when a train is near, but engineers usually blow their horn loudly at intersections. The train was headed west.
