Public TV station SRF quotes Vaud canton (state) police spokesman Pierre-Olivier Gaudard as saying one person has yet to be recovered from the wreckage.
    
The crash happened late Monday on a regional line about 50 kilometers (31 miles) southwest of the capital, Bern.

Earlier this month, 79 people were killed in a high-speed derailment in Spain.
