Berlin (dpa) - More than 20 people were injured when a mass- transit train ran into the rear of a maintenance vehicle at a Berlin station on Monday, German police said.

They said that 22 people were injured, including two seriously, following the collision at Suedkreuz, a recently rebuilt junction where several mass-transit lines operated by the Deutsche Bahn rail company meet the main north-south express rail line through the German capital.

Police said it was unclear why the train was on a rail line that has been blocked to traffic. The driver was among those injured.

Around 1,200 trains pass through the Suedkreuz station each day.
