Three people were injured Wednesday when a train travelling from the Italian city of Milan to Basel in Switzerland derailed near the central Swiss city of Lucerne, police and railway officials said.

The Eurocity train, which was carrying 160 passengers and was operated by Trenitalia, had just left the station when a carriage overturned and fell across the track.

Lucerne police said three people were taken to hospital after the derailment, which Swiss media said would see Lucerne station closed at least until Thursday.
