Police in western India say at least 52 people were killed and at least eight others injured Thursday, when a train collided with a tractor carrying a wedding party. Police say the accident happened in a small village in Maharashtra state, some 800 kilometers northeast of Bombay, also known as Mumbai. They say a local train bound for the central city of Nagpur smashed into a tractor as it was crossing the tracks. Accidents are relatively frequent on India's railway network, which handles 13 million passengers on 14,000 trains every day. In December, a head-on collision of two passenger trains in Punjab state brought opposition party calls for the resignation of Railways Minister Laloo Prasad Yadav. At least 37 people died in that crash.
