Last evening, a passenger train overshot the signal and hit another from behind on the Howrah-Chennai line in Andhra Pradesh. Thirteen people were killed and 40 injured.

Due to no signal, a Vizag-Rayagada passenger train hit a special train between Visakhapatnam and Palasa on the main line between Alamanda and Kantakapalle.

DRM Saurabh Prasad told NDTV that three coaches from Visakhapatnam-Palasa train, along with its locomotive, were derailed. During the derailment, one coach rested on a wagon that was used to haul goods.
