Officials believe three people were killed and dozens more injured when a passenger train crashed into the back of a freight train traveling on the same set of tracks in Belgium on Sunday night.

Reuters cites an official statement saying two of the passenger train’s six carriages were derailed in the collision that happened at about 11 p.m. in eastern Belgium’s Saint-Georges-Sur-Meuse.

The town’s mayor has given a preliminary estimate of three people killed and 40 injured, according to Reuters.
