Train plows into truck stopped on tracks in Italy; 2 dead

Shocking images show a derailed carriage of the train turned over on the trackside as emergency services battle to reach those injured in the horror crash.

Italian news agency ANSA said the first fatality was the engineer of the train, which smashed into the truck in the city of Turin late on Wednesday night.

The rig, which carried Lithuania license plates, was headed to a warehouse not far away, ANSA said. The truck's cargo wasn't immediately known.

The Rfi regional railroad said the railway barrier had lowered properly before the train's approach but for reasons unknown the truck smashed through the barrier and ended up on the tracks.
