More than 230 killed, 900 injured in three-train crash in India

Three passenger trains collided in the eastern Indian state of Bihar on June 2, 2023, killing at least 230 people and injuring over 900 others. The crash is one of the deadliest train accidents in India in recent years.

The accident occurred at around 11:30 a.m. local time near the town of Saharsa. Two trains were traveling in opposite directions when they collided head-on. A third train that was traveling behind the two trains was also involved in the crash.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation, but officials believe that human error may have been a factor. The trains were all running late, and it is possible that the drivers were fatigued.

Rescue workers have been working to free passengers trapped in the wreckage. The death toll is expected to rise as more bodies are recovered.

The crash has caused widespread shock and grief in India. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has expressed his condolences to the families of the victims.

The Indian government has ordered a high-level inquiry into the crash. The inquiry will look into the cause of the crash and make recommendations to prevent similar accidents from happening in the future.
