More than a dozen people injured at a train crash in Richmond

Twelve people have been injured after a train hit a barricade in Richmond

"The train was reportedly slowing to stop at the station", NSW Police said in a statement.

Brett Saunders witnessed the crash just before 10am, which he described as "horrifying". Three helicopters, 17 ambulance crews, and fire and rescue teams were deployed to escort passengers off the train.

Initial reports suggested the train derailed, but Sydney Trains CEO Howard Collins said it was still on its rails.

An investigation is under way after more than a dozen people were injured in a Sydney train crash.

"On scene, we treated and assessed 16 patients in total, with 15 of those patients being transported to hospital", Mr Vaughan said.

At the time of writing, ABC News has reported that as many as 20 people were injured in the incident.

"My first thoughts are with those people who have suffered injury", he said. "We don't believe any of those are life threatening or serious", he said.
