BREAKING - 21 injured, 4 critical after train collides with truck - Suffolk, England
[link to www.bbc.co.uk]

Eighteen people have been hurt, four seriously injured, as a train derailed in a crash with a lorry on a level crossing in Suffolk.

The two-carriage diesel passenger train was in collision with the sewage tanker in Little Cornard, Sudbury, at about 1735 BST.
 Quoting: [link to www.bbc.co.uk]


Rest of story at link.

Interesting points are that the driver of the truck has been arrested after "admitting responsibility" according to BBC TV about five minutes ago, and that it happened on a level crossing on private land.

Also, as I always say, until they rule it out, Terrorism is on the table. It looks like a failed suicide at best though.

Possibly, although I haven't seen anything about nationality yet.

We had a similar accident in Germany today.
An ICE-train collided with a garbage truck that fell(!) on the railsfrom a country road above. 15 injured.
Cosmic coincidence control center doing odd things.
