Rabat – A train derailed Friday morning in Casablanca, damaging most of its compartments. No passengers were on board.
A video shows smashed and overturned compartments of the train which derailed at around 8 a.m. while heading to Casa-Port station, resulting in delays.
The eyewitness who recorded the video pointed out that “luckily passengers were not onboard.”
The National Railway Office (ONCF) has not published details about the cause of the derailment but wrote on its Twitter page that two empty compartments had collided during testing.
