    At least 20 people have been wounded in a collision between a train and a truck in Germany's northernmost state of Schleswig-Holstein, the NDR broadcaster reported, citing local police.

    A semi-trailer and a train collided in Alt Duvenstedt on Wednesday, according to NDR. Deutsche Bahn also stated that the collision has led to the closure of a railway section between Rendsburg and Owschlag, as parts of the overhead line at the site had been demolished.

    One person is in life-threatening condition and five were severely injured as a result of the accident, the broadcaster reported. The victims have been taken to a hospital by a medical helicopter.
