Layyah, Pakistan: 22 injured in crossing collision with a bus

12 Jan

Fog is seen as a primary factor in respect of a collision between a train and a bus on the Karor Lal Esan unmanned level crossing near Layyah in Pakistan’s Punjab province. The accident which occurred on January 10th, 2014 injured 22 passengers travelling on the bus. Of the injured three are reported to be critically injured and three seriously hurt.

One report alleges negligence on the part of Pakistan Railways as the crossing is equipped with manually operated barriers which had been left in the raised position as the crossing was unattended at the time of the accident. At the time of writing, it has not been possible to verify this.
