The force of the crash crumpled the front of the train against the buffer and detached a sheet of metal.
Twenty of the injured, including the driver, were taken to hospital, emergency services said, while paramedics treated others on stretchers on the platform. They had previously given the number of injured as 39.
Many of the passengers were already standing, ready to get off, when the train crashed, the newspaper La Vanguardia reported.
