Rescue workers at Argentine train crash scene

Argentine rescue workers are responding to a fatal commuter train crash.

A two-level train slammed into another that had stopped between stations during the morning commute west of Buenos Aires.

Firefighters and police are pulling passengers from the wreckage and helicopters are taking people to emergency rooms.

Train operator spokesman Pablo Gunning said there were "various fatalities".

The accident happened on the same line that the government took over after a crash blamed on brake failures caused 51 deaths and 700 injuries last year.
