A Train Accident in Ukraine - 43 Dead

Ordzhonikidze, Ukraine, 12 October 2010 - A locomotive rammed through a stalled passenger bus on a railroad crossing in eastern Ukraine, killing 43 people and injuring eight others as the bus was pushed 300 yards down the tracks.

Investigators said the bus driver ignored the siren of the oncoming train and the bus stalled on the tracks as the driver tried to shift gears. Witnesses said the driver also ignored a red light.

The yellow bus was smashed into a pile of metal by the blue locomotive, which was not pulling any cars. Television footage showed emergency workers piling bodies alongside the tracks outside the town of Marhanets in the Dnipropetrovsk region.

"The driver violated traffic rules," said Lyudmila Bolshakova, spokeswoman for local police.
