(AP) Two passenger trains have collided at a railway station in northeast China, injuring at least 24 people.

The official Xinhua News Agency says the trains collided Thursday evening at the Jiamusi railway station in Heilongjiang province. Station officials reached by phone said they had no information.

Xinhua cites a railway spokesman in the provincial capital as saying most of the people who were injured were preparing to get off a train when the other train collided into it, causing them to fall.

Xinhua reports that most of the injuries were slight and that five people are still under medical observation. An investigation is under way.

Xinhua also reports that elsewhere in Heilongjiang, three trucks plunged into a river after a bridge collapsed early Friday, killing three people.
