Metrorail confirmed that a side train collision between the two trains, T0601 and 1817, had occurred at Elandsfontein at around 06:25am.

A bystander takes a photograph of a train collision in Elandsfontein in Johannesburg East that left one man dead and 102 people injured on 1 June 2017. The collision was due to improper signalling as a result of cable theft, and apart from injuries left many commuters stranded. Picture: Yeshiel Panchia
