The driver of one of two trains which collided head on in Switzerland is still unaccounted for Monday night. Rescue workers think he is still inside the wreckage. Authorities say the trains were regional trains that travel at lower speeds than national trains and that this likely helped contain casualties. A spokesman said 35 were injured, five seriously. There is no word yet on what caused the crash. About 40 people were on the two trains. The crash follows a massive train crash in Spain last week that killed 79 people.
