Several people are injured after two light-rail trains collided in San Francisco.

Judson True, a spokesman for the city's Muni service, says the crash occurred just before 3 pm (local time) on Saturday when one train rear-ended another train near a boarding platform.

Witnesses say one of the trains was stopped, and the other train hit it as it emerged from a tunnel connecting downtown San Francisco to the city's western neighbourhoods.

The trains were full of riders, but there are no life-threatening injuries reported.

The front of one train was smashed, while the other train did not appear to suffer major damage.
