Train and truck collides in Bulgaria, three people dead

Train and truck collides in Bulgaria

A passenger train collided with a truck loaded with crushed stone in northwest Bulgaria Tuesday, killing three people, the interior ministry said.

The accident happened at an unguarded railway crossing near Gara Oreshets, in northwestern Bulgaria, the ministry said in a statement.

The two train drivers and the driver of the truck were killed in the crash.

Bulgaria’s railway network is largely outdated, forcing drastic limits of train speeds in some areas. Train accidents happen frequently but fatalities are rare.
