Train officials stated that an engineer on their commuter train that collided head-on with a freight train ignored a red light telling him to stop. The train accident killed at least 24 people and critically injured dozens more. A spokesperson stated that the cause of the accident was directly related to the engineer’s failure to stop. Authorities said that the number of dead found in the wreckage had reached 24 and was likely to rise. Authorities said that about 100 people were taken to the hospital with personal injuries.
