Czech bullet train collides with engine, 1 dead, 5 injured
- Czech Republic
A bullet train collided with an engine in a train station in the northeastern Czech Republic Monday, killing one person and injuring five.
The driver of the bullet train was killed, while four Czech Railways employees on the engine and one on the train were injured. It was unclear whether the engine was moving at the time of the head-on crash.
Rescuers said no passengers were injured.
The Rail Safety Inspection Office, an agency that investigates train crashes, said the high-speed train was on the wrong line at the time of the crash, and the accident might have been caused by human error.
