(Newser) – It has been a bad month to be a train commuter: Canada, France, Spain, and now ... Switzerland, where two commuter trains collided head-on today, injuring 44, four seriously, reports CNN. Local TV says one person is yet to be recovered from the wreckage, the AP reports. The crash happened between the cities of Moudon and Payerne. "We don't know why this crash happened," says a Swiss Federal Railways spokesman, per CNN. "There is currently no train service between these two cities until midnight tonight at least."
