ROME (REUTERS) - A local train derailed on Wednesday (Aug 19) in the northern Italian region of Lombardy, injuring the driver, the fire brigade said.

The line, operated by rail company Trenord, connects Milan and the lake of Como, and crosses a rich and industrial area known as Brianza, north-east of Italy's financial capital.

The accident left four to seven carriages derailed close to the station of the small town of Carnate, a spokesman for the fire brigade said.
