High Speed Rail Crash In China Leaves 43 Dead

Two bullet trains collided in China killing 43, injuring 211, on Saturday evening, July 23 in Wenzhou city, after one train stalled on a viaduct, causing four cars of the moving train to fall up to 100 ft. to the ground below. Video attached.

The stalled train was "traveling south from the Zhejiang provincial capital of Hangzhou" when it was hit by lightening. In April, 2008, China suffered it's worst rail crash when a train derailed, crashing into another resulting in 72 fatalities.

Saturday's crash was the first since China involving high speed rail. Trains traveling 155 mph began service in 2007.
