Among the dead, two are children.

The injured are being rushed to the nearby hospitals, from where they could be taken to Visakhapatnam. There are also fears that the toll may go up.

The district collector and superintendent of police are at the accident site.

A railway official told HT there was no fire or smoke. A probe could be ordered into the incident.
