Early this morning, 9 people were confirmed dead from a railway accident in China’s Gansu Province, a northcentral province south of Mongolia. Reportedly, the train rammed workers.

The train was coming from Urumqi and was head to Hangzhou, when it crashed into railway workers around 5:25 in the morning in Jinchang city.

Emergency responders were sent to the scene to attend to the workers.

Chinese citizens are dubious how such an accident could have occurred:

If the workers were carrying out maintenance work, then the train drivers should have known about it. How could this have happened? That’s nine lives gone!”

Another citizen says:

“Who is responsible and what has he been doing?”

Further details are unknown at this time.

Last month, a train accident in Malaysia left 200 injured. The incident is still being investigated.
