14 killed in two train accidents in India

(Dawn)

At least 14 people, mostly children and women, were killed in two train accidents in eastern and northern India, officials said on Tuesday.

A speed train hit a jeep at an unmanned crossing in Jharkhand state's Ramgarh district, night killing 13 occupants of the vehicle, railway authority spokesman AK Rjak told newsmen.

According to witnesses, the tyres of the jeep were stuck in the rail track and the train hit the vehicle before the passengers could get away.

"The vehicle was damaged badly, as the train dragged it for more than 100 metres,"

"It is not a declared gate and many vehicles cross the railway track unauthorised," jak said.

Similarly, early Tuesday, two trains collided in the northern state of Haryana, killing the driver of one locomotive.

The passengers were safe but a guard on one train was injured, a railway official said.
