Pendolino high-speed train driver killed in a collision Monday morning in Bohumin, Czech Republic

A train driver died on Monday morning after his Pendolino train hit a shunting locomotive at Bohumín station in the Moravia-Silesia region of the Czech Republic. A member of the train’s crew was slightly injured, as were four people working on the shunting locomotive, a spokesman for the railway company told Czech news agency CTK.

Railway Inspectorate chief Jan Ku?era said the most likely cause of the accident was the Pendolino driver’s failure to obey a stop signal.
