Indian Express Trains Collide Head On

Thu Apr 21, 2005 8:15 pm

Two Express Trains in India have collided head on. Several hundred people are seriously injured and over 50 people have been killed, with death toll still rising. One train was carrying young people who were on their way to sit exams for the national train system jobs. Pictures show the accident scene with wreckage everywhere.

I have just heard this on the TV1 late news
