Hankyu derailment accident Resumption of operation Kobe Line Shukugawa Station and Shinkaichi Station up and down line November 24, 10:03
On the night of the 23rd, a train collided with a car at a railroad crossing of Hankyu Railway in Kobe city, and the leading car derailed, so the Kobe line resumed operation in some sections that could not be operated.
After 7:40 pm on the 23rd, at the railroad crossing of Hankyu Railway in Miyayama-cho, Nada-ku, Kobe, a limited express train bound for Osaka Umeda Station collided with a light car, and the leading car derailed, but no one was injured. ..
The Hankyu Kobe Line was unable to operate on the up and down lines between Shukugawa Station and Shinkaichi Station due to a broken traffic light near the site, but resumed operation at 9:21 am.
In the early morning before resuming operation, at Hankyu / Kobe Sannomiya Station in Kobe City, passengers quickly left after seeing a sticker informing them of the suspension of driving, and received explanations from station staff.
According to police, a 42-year-old man who was driving a light car that hit a train said, "I parked my car on a slope near a railroad crossing and went out for business, but the side brakes may have been loose." I'm investigating the details of the situation.
In addition, the Japan Transport Safety Board has decided to dispatch a railway accident investigator to the site today to investigate the cause of the accident.
