Passenger Train Crashes into Bridge in Czech Republic
Six people were killed and 31 injured when a train crashed into a collapsed bridge in the Czech Republic today.
The international EuroCity train was travelling from the Polish city of Krakow to the Czech capital Prague at about 90 miles an hour, when it struck a motorway bridge near the town of Studenka.
According to some reports, the bridge collapsed on to the train as it sped beneath the structure, killing five women and one man, and leaving 31 people with injuries.
Studenka lies about 350km from Prague and close to the eastern Czech city of Ostrava and the Polish border.
