Collision of bus and train in Bangkok, kills and injures many
A train has collided with a double-decker bus carrying Thai tourists at an unguarded railway crossing in central Thailand.
Local media say three people were killed and more than two dozen injured.
Security video showed the bus moving slowly across the tracks and stopping momentarily before it collides with the train.
Another video from a different angle shows the bus being hit and dragged some distance in a cloud of dust.
The Bangkok Post said that the driver of the bus was killed at the scene of Sunday’s crash, and that two passengers died at a hospital. Around 30 passengers were injured.
It said the accident occurred in Nakhon Pathom province, west of Bangkok.
The bus was taking tourists to Samet island in Rayong province, southeast of Bangkok.
