A freight train collided with a locomotive which was in charge of moving cars at a station in the central Vietnamese province of Quang Nam on Saturday, causing many carriages to derail and goods to be thrown off the train.

The accident happened at around 4:20 pm at the train station in Nui Thanh Town, Quang Nam Province, when the freight train ASY2 was approaching the place.

At the same time, locomotive No. 350 was moving the cars of another freight train No. 2469 at the station.

A collision then occurred between the train ASY2 and locomotive No. 350, causing the latter and four cars of the freight train to topple and goods to be thrown onto the ground.

Locomotive No. 350 and a car that it was pulling were also knocked off their tracks.

There were no casualties, but financial damage has yet to be calculated.

Competent authorities are investigating the cause of the accident.

Initial information showed that locomotive No. 350 had gone past its safe area, which is designated to prevent collisions with oncoming trains.

The Vietnam Railways has mobilized its relevant units to deal with the incident.

The north-to-south railway operations were still affected by the crash as of Saturday night.

Train passengers were transported in automobiles between Tam Ky Station in Quang Nam Province and Tri Binh Station in neighboring Quang Ngai Province to continue their journey.
