    Background: THREE TRAINS WERE INVOLVED IN A COLLISION IN FRANCE TODAY (WEDNESDAY). FOUR PEOPLE WERE KILLED AND FOUR INJURED.

    THE PILE-UP OCCURRED AT ACHERES, A BIG MARSHALLING YARD BETWEEN PARIS AND LE HAVRE. RAILWAY AUTHORITIES SAID AN EXPRESS BOUND FOR LE HAVRE CRASHED INTO A DERAILED GOODS WAGON.

    THE EXPRESS LOCOMOTIVE WAS KNOCKED OFF THE RAILS, AND A FEW MINUTES LATER ANOTHER EXPRESS COMING FROM THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION - FROM LE HAVRE TO PARIS - PILED INTO IT.

    THE FOUR KILLED WERE THE CREWS OF THE TWO PASSENGER LOCOMOTIVES.
