MOSCOW, (Xinhua): At least five people died and 45 others were injured when two trains collided in the Moscow region Tuesday, the Interior Ministry said.

“A total of 50 people got injured, and five of them died,” the RIA Novosti news agency quoted an unnamed spokesman for the operational team at the scene as saying.

Another source in law enforcement agencies told the Interfax news agency that 25 people were rushed to hospitals outside Moscow, and three of them were in intensive care.

The collision occurred near the Bekasovo station about 70 km southwest of Moscow at 13:00 p.m. Moscow time (1000 GMT). Several carriages of a cargo train derailed and hit a passenger train going on the neighboring track to Moldovan capital Chisinau from Moscow.

“Preliminary investigation showed the crash happened due to the freighter’s broken bogie,” Interfax quoted an unnamed source in the Russian Railways company as saying.

The source also said the cargo train “belongs to Ukraine.”

The number of casualties might grow as rescuers removed passengers form the wrecks. The Emergencies Ministry has deployed seven helicopters to rush wounded people to hospitals in nearby towns.

Russian authorities have opened a criminal case over the collision.
