A passenger train ran into a Volvo truck yesterday night in the Kharkov region of Ukraine. The truck did not make way for the passenger train, which was travelling from Simferopol to Moscow. The locomotive and two passenger cars derailed. There were no either killed or injured people among the passengers, although one person was hurt, standing close to the crossing. The train movement was stopped on that part of the railway, the rescue teams were sent to the site of the collision.
