Deadly Train Crash in India

Dozens are dead in India after a speeding passenger train slammed into another while waiting at a platform. Foul play is not being ruled out, as it’s the second major train crash in India in less than two months.

Rescuers crawled through the mangled wreckage to save anybody they could after a deadly train crash in India.
Indian officials say this scene could be a deliberate act of sabotage.

More than 60 people were killed early Monday when a speeding express train plowed into a passenger train just as it was leaving a station.

Guddu Majumdar, an eyewitness, says the train was hit so fiercely, bodies piled up on top of each other.

The force of the impact was so powerful, it forced the roof of one car over a bridge.

Trapped survivors gave desperate signs of life to search teams. More than 100 people were injured in the massive collision.

It's the second major train crash in India in less than two months...making transport officials suspicious of sabotage.

Maoist rebels were blamed for a train derailment that killed 145 people in May.

Railway workers told Indian TV somebody may have intentionally tampered with the signals.

Accidents are not uncommon on India's railways, which have a poor track record for maintenance.

As the cleanup begins, so does the investigation to find out what brought both trains to the same deadly destination.
