GHAZIABAD - A train’s engine and five coaches derailed after five motorcycles were crushed under it at a railway crossing in Ghaziabad, police said. No one was injured.
The bikes were reduced to mangled steel by the New Delhi-bound Shramjeevi Express, coming from Patna, at Kotgaon crossing around 11.25 a.m. The vehicle owners had a narrow escape.
“Barring the five bogeys that had derailed, the remaining 13 out of a total of 18 were sent to the destination station after shifting the remaining passengers in them,” a Railway Protection Force (RPF) official said. No one was injured in the incident.
The official said the bikes were cut into pieces after being hit by the train while their owners were trying to cross the tracks.
Railway engineering officials and RPF personnel rushed to the spot, about half a kilometre from Ghaziabad railway station.
