Rescue workers in the Philippines were scrambling Wednesday to save passengers on a train that crashed into a concrete barrier and rolled into a busy street intersection.

Senior superintendent Florencio Ortilla said several injured riders were already taken from the front car and transported to a nearby hospital, The Associated Press reported.

It’s not yet clear why the train crashed into the barrier.

Nobody yet has been reported dead, but the crash caused a massive traffic jam, AP reported.

The incident occurred in Passay city in the metropolitan Manila section of the Philippines.
