Manage Alerts | What Is This? VALENCIA, Spain (CNN) -- At least 41 people were killed when a subway train derailed in the eastern Spanish city of Valencia on Monday, officials said, Reuters news agency reported.
Another 47 people were injured, two of them critically, Reuters quoted officials as saying.
Similar casualty figures were reported by The Associated Press.
The train left the tracks approaching the Jesus underground station early on Monday afternoon in what officials said appeared to be an accident.
They said a wheel broke on a curve, derailing two carriages in the tunnel.
Earlier, CNN+ reported the death toll at 36. The newspaper El Pais said "at least 34" were dead.
Valencia, a Mediterranean port city of 800,000 people, is about 350 kilometers (220 miles) southeast of Madrid.
