Close shave for passengers as train hits truck near Bengaluru
Railway officials who confirmed the incident on Monday night said there were no reports of injuries or casualties.
The locopilot of the incoming Mysuru-Myladuthurai Express applied emergency brakes after seeing the vehicle on the track but could not prevent hitting it at around 8.30 pm.
The truck driver fled abandoning the vehicle at the spot, the officials said, adding, a case has been registered against him for negligent driving.
''The train did not jump track and rail services were restored after some time following the inspection which was carried out during heavy downpour'', an official said.
