High Speed Rail Crash In China Leaves 43 Dead
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.
