133 Dead in Pakistani Train Collision

  • VOA News

Pakistani railway workers are trying to clear the tracks following Wednesday's massive train collision that killed at least 133 people.

The accident, Pakistan's worst train crash in a decade, involved three passenger trains in southern Sindh province. It left metal, glass and body parts strewn across several rail lines at Ghotki station.

The death toll went up after workers pulled five more bodies from the wreckage. Pakistan Railway also released the passenger lists for the three affected trains and the names of the dead.

Officials say the crash was caused by the driver of one express train who misunderstood a signal and rammed into a stationary train, full of sleeping passengers. A third train then crashed into the debris.
