ROME (AP) _ Two trains collided at a station south of Rome on Tuesday, injuring several people, Italy's state railway said.

A train traveling from Rome to Cassino stopped at the station in Roccasecca, about 130 kilometers (80 miles) south of the capital, when another train coming on the same track slammed into it from behind, said Luigi Irdi, a spokesman for Trenitalia.

The cause of the collision was under investigation. Further details were not immediately available.

Irdi said ``some injuries'' had been reported. Italian media reported ``dozens'' of injuries.
