17 injured after train derails
The train derailed this morning near Elandsfontein station while en route from PTA to JHB.
Seventeen people were injured in the incident, two of them seriously.
Emergency services spokesman William Ntladi says the other 15 people sustained minor injuries.
Five other train tracks have been closed and delays to the Metrorail service are expected.
It's understood the train derailed while en route from Pretoria to Johannesburg.
Hundreds of people reportedly abandoned the carriages out of fear the train may tip over.
Metrorail management say they're still trying to determine the cause of the derailment.
