BERN, Switzerland (AP) - Police in western Switzerland now say at least 35 people have been hurt -- five of them seriously -- in a head-on collision of two trains.

Crews were still trying to remove one person from the wreckage -- reportedly the driver of one of the trains. It wasn't clear whether he had survived the crash.

The crash happened on a regional line about 31 miles southwest of the capital, Bern. It happened just days after 79 people were killed in a high-speed train derailment in Spain.

Photos from the Swiss site showed the two regional trains locked together, partly lifted off the tracks by the force of the collision.
