MILAN (AP) — Italian news agency ANSA says that a small tourist plane has crashed into train tracks in Rome, injuring the two people on board.

ANSA said the plane crashed as it was making a landing, ending up on a high-speed rail line and blocking train traffic. The cause wasn't immediately known. An official said that two trains that were nearby were able to stop in time.

The Italian State Railway said the crash didn't damage the line and that traffic would be able to resume normally once the aircraft is removed.

The railway said that in the meantime, traffic was being diverted to other tracks, creating delays of up to an hour.
