Train services resume in India after fatal crash

STORY: Drone footage showed trains moving on railway tracks past mangled and derailed coaches involved in Friday's (June 2) collision, while large groups of people carried out restoration works at the crash site.

Nearly 1,200 people were injured when a passenger train hit a stationary freight train, jumped the tracks and hit another passenger train passing in the opposite direction near Balasore on Friday. Preliminary investigations indicated signal failure emerging as the likely cause of the accident.

State-run Indian Railways, which says it transports more than 13 million people every day, has been working to improve its patchy safety record, blamed on aging infrastructure, and is conducting an initial inquiry to determine the cause of the crash.
