Two hundred firefighters, including a helicopter and dozens of ambulances were rushed to the wreckage scene near Bologna after the collision on a single-track section of line, close to the Bolognina di Crevalcore station, wrote the Turkish Press.

According to Reuters, the impact derailed one of the engines, while one carriage was thrust into the air and crashed down onto the other train.

Six hours after the crash, rescue workers using blow torches and metal cutters were still trying to reach part of the wreckage where they feared more passengers may have been trapped.

"We expect to work through the night," said national fire brigades chief Mario Morcone. "We still have to lift a part of the carriage that was sent flying 10 metres up before it fell and we hope we don't find other victims in there," he said.

The cause of the crash was not known, but officials said there was thick fog at the time of the collision. The &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/politics/2002/10/04/37755.html ' target=_blank>Transport Ministry said it was opening an investigation.
