  • Twenty have been confirmed dead in a head-on train collision in Italy.
  • A rescue operation is still on-going, as officials are taking numerous survivors to hospitals with major injuries.
  • So far, the cause of the accident is not known but the Director General of the company that runs the trains says they are looking into it.

Death and destruction welcomed Italy as the country awoke this morning. Two passenger bearing trains collided with a deadly, head-on, force. Twenty people have been pronounced dead so far, dozens of others are injured. The rescue operation, in what must be a miracle, was reportedly able to pull two living passengers from the wreckage.

The Vice President of the province of Andria, Giuseppe Corrado, said that so far the death count is twenty but the rescue operation will continue. Yet, another official said that the only possible way to know the true death toll will be to tear the entire train apart.

The two four-car trains collided midway between Andria and Corato, the accident occurred at 11:30 am.

A local mayor Massimo Mazzilli posted a photo of the crash on his Facebook page with this message: “It’s a disaster as if an airplane fell.”

The Italian Premier Matteo Renzi vowed to have a thorough investigation and left Milan to return to Rome to keep an eye on the situation.

The train, from the pictures, was in shambles. The impact of the accident was so powerful that cars were thrown off the tracks. Zingaro told ANSA that, “Some of the cars are completely crumpled and the rescuers are extracting people from the metal, many of them injured.”

It has been discovered that the trains were being operated by a private company called Ferrotramviaria. The specific trains connect towns to the north, the airport, and the city of Bari. The line is known to accommodate students and commuters mostly.

Massimo Nitti, the Director General of Ferrotramviaria, in a phone interview said that what went wrong is still to be determined, but clearly “one of the trains wasn’t supposed to be there.”
