Hopefully the injuries are not serious.

The carriage seems to have deformed quite badly. Is that an intentional part of the design?

In the middle of the passenger saloon? No most definitely not.

 

We do seem to see a lot of deformation on these low floor trains.

 

Does anyone know what class of train it is and who made it?

From photos it appears to be a Bombardier Talent 2 class 443. However, I am no expert on this modern stuff.

Hmm, the photos in that article appear to show it deforming at a drop floor for the doors, possibly design weakness?
