Belgian Train Crash
February 15th, 2010 by elisa

 Two passenger trains have collided at 8.30am (local time) today in Halle, Belgium, with 20 confirmed dead so far.

The horrific accident occurred due to one of the trains missing a stop signal recent reports have said. Belgium’s track operator, Infrabel said that an official investigation into the cause of the crash is already underway.

Doctors were treating some passengers at the scene of the crash, including performing amputations, while others were taken to nearby hospitals to be treated. Around 150 slightly injured passengers were taken to a sports hall for treatment.

At the moment there is some confusion over the total number of people killed in the accident with conflicting reports being made; however the latest official report is that 20 people have died, with the possibility of the death toll rising.
