Rail crash kills three

BANDUNG: Three people were killed when their transit van was smashed by a train in Jl. Arjuna near Ciroyom Market on Tuesday.

The van's driver and another passenger were injured and immediately taken to the Hasan Sadikin hospital, witnesses said.

The van apparently forced its way through although the rail gates were already down just as the train from Sarijadi to Ciroyom came by.

The accident was inevitable. The train smashed into the rear of the van and dragged it several meters. (pet/emb)
