The Coromandel Express collided with a cargo train on Friday in Odisha’s Balasore district as it traveled from Kolkata’s Howrah station in West Bengal to Chennai in Tamil Nadu. Many express train passengers are believed to be dead after the incident near the Bahanaga railway station in the Balasore area, and many more are believed to be trapped within the superfast train’s upturned carriages.

Teams have been despatched to the accident scene for a search and rescue effort, according to the Special Relief Commissioner’s (SRC) office. Five ambulances have reportedly been despatched to help with the rescue effort, according to the Odisha State Disaster Management Authority.

15 ambulances have been sent out, according to the Additional Directorate of Medical Education and Training in Odisha, and patients are being transferred to a community health center in the city of Soro.

Additionally, the SRC instructed the District Magistrate of Balasore to visit the accident scene, make all necessary preparations, and notify the SRC if any extra assistance from the state was required.

Images taken at the scene demonstrate how, following the incident, the Coromandel Express engine crossed over the cargo train. Both trains were on the same track, according to the original report. A probe into the circumstances surrounding the accident has been launched.
