At Least 61 People Killed In India Train Crash-Photos

At 2 a.m. Monday, there was a bad train accident at the Sainthia station near Calcutta in India.

This is a disaster.

The speeding Uttarbanga Express hit the Vananchal Express that was not moving.

The impact of the accident was so strong that the roof of one car flew into the air.

It landed on an overpass above the track.

So far, 61 bodies were found at the crash site; including 2 drivers of the

Uttarbanga Express.

125 people were injured.

The local people said that the rescue teams arrived about 3 hours after the accident.

The police said that they arrived within an hour after the accident.

It is not good if the rescue teams arrive late when there is an accident.

Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee, who rushed to the site, said that the crash could have been a sabotage.
