Train Collision Claims Two Lives in Zambia (News Central TV)

Two people have died after a cargo train crashed into a truck at a railway crossing north of Zambia’s capital Lusaka on Monday.

Police commander for Zambia’s Central Province, Donald Mwandila, told newsmen that operators of the train were killed in the accident.

The truck was coming from Lusaka and its driver failed to stop at a railway crossing in Kapiri Mposhi, a district some 200 kilometres from the capital.

“The driver ran away from the accident site, but we managed to find and arrest him. He is being interrogated,” the officer said.

The accident at the rail crossing caused a massive traffic jam in the area, with local media reporting lines of vehicles on either side of the Great North Road, a major thoroughfare, stretching for more than a kilometre.
