Train derails in Poland after hitting truck, two dead
WARSAW (Reuters) - An intercity train derailed in northern Poland Thursday after hitting a truck at a road crossing, killing two and injuring at least 23 passengers, regional rescue services said Thursday.
An unidentified man and woman were killed when the locomotive and four carriages, traveling from the southern city of Katowice to the Baltic port of Gdynia, came off the tracks after hitting the vehicle in a village near the city of Lebork.
"The accident was caused by a truck trying to cross the track at an unattended crossing," Rafal Grzeszkiewicz from the regional crisis center told Reuters.
