One dead, 32 injured after train, truck collide at rail crossing in Yokohama

A commuter train and a truck loaded with citrus fruit collided at a rail crossing in Yokohama on Thursday, killing the truck driver and injuring at least 32 people on the train.
Police and fire department officials said the collision occurred at around 11:40 a.m. on the crossing on the Keikyu Line between Kanagawa-Shimmachi and Nakakido stations. Witnesses said the truck entered the crossing from a narrow road parallel to the tracks and became stuck.
A spokesperson for train operator Keikyu Corp said the driver applied the emergency brake after he saw the truck but couldn't stop in time. The train was traveling at about 120 kilometers per hour.
The first three carriages of the eight-car train were derailed. The train's front window was smashed and the truck was pushed against a wall before bursting into flames.
