  • Description

    Six people were killed and 19 injured the Delhi-Jaipur passenger train collided with the Bikaner Mail at Garhi Harsaru Station, 25 miles from Delhi, India, May 9.

    Casualties could have been higher, but the passenger train was moving fairly slowly when it hit the rear of the stationary mail train. The Delhi-Jaipur engine and its two first carriages went off the rails, and six mail vans were also de-railed. An ambulance was rushed from the Irwin Hospital in Delhi to the scene of the accident; unhurt passengers collected their belongings and boarded a relief train. So far the cause of the collision is unknown.
