Two Die, 18 Injured in Train Accident in Italy

The five-carriage train smashed into the truck late Wednesday after the heavy goods vehicle broke through a level crossing and got stuck on the tracks between the towns of Rodallo and Caluso, Italy’s state train company said, according to Reuters.

The drivers of both the train and the truck were killed.

The local train connects the regional capital of Turin with the northern city of Ivrea.

It was the latest in a series of deadly accidents on Italy’s rail network.

In January three people were killed when a train derailed along a busy commuter route near Milan. In 2016, 23 people died when two trains collided in the southern region of Puglia.
