(CNN)Three people were killed and dozens were injured after a passenger train crashed into a cargo train in eastern Belgium, according to local police.

The passenger train, which was carrying about 40 people, rammed into the rear of a cargo train that was stationary on the same track Sunday night, according to a release from Belgium's national railway.
The passenger train was traveling at a normal speed, said Fabrice Levaux of Belgium's Federal Police. The cause of the accident is under investigation.
