The Light Rail Transit Line 2 resumed operations Sunday morning after its suspension following a collision of two trains between the Anonas and Cubao stations Saturday evening.

“LRT-2 resumed its operations with train insertion at 10:47 a.m. today (Sunday),” said Department of Transportation Assistant Secretary for Communications Goddes Hope Libiran.

The LRT-2 got back to full service operations around 12:13 p.m.

Two LRT-2 trains collided between the Cubao and Anonas stations around 9:51 p.m. Saturday, resulting in injury to 34 persons.

Initial investigation showed a train full of passengers was bound for Santolan station when it hit a train parked on the tracks. Debris from the collision fell to the streets below.

The DOTr and the Light Rail Transit Authority said they would shoulder the medical expenses of the persons injured and provide them assistance.

The LRTA created a fact-finding committee to investigate the cause of the collision, make recommendations to prevent similar incidents, and assess the response and actions taken by LRT-2 management.

“Transport Secretary Arthur Tugade assures everyone that we will get to the bottom of this. If it is found that there have been lapses or negligence, we will make sure that appropriate charges will be filed,” Libiran said.
