20 乘公共汽车在泰国的寺庙旅行中丧生, 火车相撞

星期天,一辆前往佛教寺庙的公共汽车与泰国中部的一列火车相撞, 至少杀死 20 人死亡和受伤 30, 当局说.

事故发生在 8:05 上午. (0105 格林威治标准时间) near the Khlong Kwaeng Klan railway station 63 km (40 英里) east of Bangkok, said Maitree Tritilanon, governor of Chachoengsao province, where the crash occurred.
A tour bus carrying some 60 factory workers on their way to a Buddhist ceremony at a temple was crossing a railway track when it was hit by a freight train headed to the capital from the east of the country.
The bus was flipped on its side and the top ripped off, with debris and metal scattered around the accident area, images from rescue workers showed. The train remained on the rails.
    Governor Maitree said the crossing has an alarm but no barrier to block traffic when a train is coming. He said the province will install speed bumps and barriers as well as cut down trees near the crossing to improve visibility.
    Let this case be a lesson, and we will make improvements at risky spots so such accidents will not take place again,” Maitree said in a statement.
      Thailand’s roads rank among the world’s deadliest, according to the World Health Organization. There has been little improvement despite safety campaigns over the years.
      The bus passengers were traveling from Samut Prakan province to a Buddhist temple in Chachoengsao for a merit-making ceremony marking the end of the Buddhist Lent.
