Train crash kills 3 passengers in Austria

A passenger train struck and killed two police officers and a funeral parlor employee Friday as they were removing the body of an apparent suicide victim from railway tracks in western Austria, state television reported.

Public broadcaster ORF said the accident happened shortly after 10 a.m. (0900 GMT) near the town of Lochau am Bodensee, just over the border from Germany in Austria's westernmost province of Vorarlberg.

The station quoted police officials as saying the three were killed instantly when an intercity train hit them as they were investigating and preparing to take away the remains of a man who appeared to have thrown himself in front of an earlier train, reports AP.

The intercity train was traveling from the southern German city of Munich to Zurich, in eastern Switzerland.

Further details were not immediately available.
