MILAN (AP) -- Firefighters in southern Italy say at least a dozen people have been killed when two trains collided head-on in Puglia.

The trains, each with four cars, collided near the town of Andria on a line with just a single track, according to news agency ANSA and Sky TG24.

A photo of the crash showed cars crumpled together and forced off the tracks at sharp angles. News reports said rescue workers were pulling victims from the rubble, including a small child who was alive. Video images showed ambulances responding to the scene with other rescue workers.

National police and Carabinieri couldn't immediately give details about the extent of the crash, saying they were in the middle of responding.
