12 Killed in Italy Train Crash

Twelve people have been killed and dozens more hurt in a head-on collision involving two passenger trains in southern Italy, reports say.  The two trains were on a single-track line at the time of the crash, between the coastal towns of Bari and Barletta. Emergency services are trying to free passengers from the wrecked carriages near the town of Andria, BBC reported. “I think there are many dead,” local fire brigade commander, Riccardo Zingaro, told Rai TV. Some of the carriages were badly damaged, he said. One of those rescued from the wreckage was a small child who was airlifted to hospital.
