At least 48 people were killed in a train accident in Taiwan

At least 48 people died in Taiwan after a vehicle rolled down a hill and hit a passing train on Friday, causing it to partially derail outside a tunnel. Dozens of people were injured. The train was partially out of the tunnel and many cars were still inside. Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen tweeted that the emergency services “have been fully mobilized to rescue and support the affected passengers and railroad workers. We will continue to do everything we can to ensure their safety after this heartbreaking incident.” The accident happened on the first day of the annual Tomb Sweeping Festival, a four-day religious festival where people return to their hometowns for family celebrations and pay respect at the graves of their ancestors. Taiwan Prime Minister Su Tseng-chang said the railway administration will review the track controls to “prevent this from happening again”.
