SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA (NBC) - Officials say around 200 people were hurt Friday by a subway collision in the South Korean capital.

A subway train plowed into the back of another train in Seoul.

Officials say about 150 were hospitalized but most had minor injuries.

According to subway officials, a preliminary investigation suggested there may have been a malfunction on the train's automatic distance control system.

Local media reported passengers had to wait for a long time for instructions.

That struck a nerve after last month's ferry sinking in South Korea, where hundreds died when an evacuation order wasn't issued immediately.
