UPDATE: Via Rail service between Toronto, Montreal, and Ottawa to resume Saturday

Service stopped after collision between Via and CN trains Friday

Via Rail train service is scheduled to resume today on the Toronto to Montreal and Toronto to Ottawa routes.

The service was shut down Friday after a collision between a Via train and a CN freight train east of Kingston, Ont.

Via says the freight train struck the passenger train's locomotive and a few cars about seven kilometres from Gananoque.

It says the train was travelling from Ottawa to Toronto with about 300 people on board.

One passenger reported a minor injury.

Buses replaced train service on the two routes for the rest of Friday.
