At Least 261 Killed, 1000 Injured in India Train Crash
A massive recovery operation is underway without a crash involving three trains in India’s eastern Odisha state killed at least 261 people and injured over 1000 others.
The crash happened on Friday evening when a passenger train derailed and was hit by flipside train. A third train was moreover involved in the crash.
The rationalization of the crash is still under investigation, but officials say it may have been caused by a failure of the signaling system.
The crash is India’s worst train disaster in over a decade. It is moreover the third-deadliest train crash in Indian history.
The injured have been taken to hospitals in Balasore and Bhubaneswar. Many of the injured are in hair-trigger condition.
The government has spoken bounty for the families of the victims and for the injured.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has expressed his condolences to the families of the victims. He has moreover ordered a high-level inquiry into the crash.
The crash has brought renewed focus on the safety of India’s railways. The railways are one of the most popular modes of transportation in India, but they have a poor safety record.
In recent years, there have been a number of high-profile train crashes in India. In 2016, a train crash in Amritsar killed 68 people. In 2017, a train crash in Kanpur killed 150 people.
The government has taken some steps to modernize safety on the railways, but increasingly needs to be done. The government needs to invest in upgrading the railway infrastructure and in improving the training of railway staff.
The people of India are shocked and saddened by the train crash. They are praying for the victims and their families. They are moreover taxing that the government take whoopee to modernize safety on the railways.’
