“The locomotive crew was taken to the hospital, the driver of the car was killed,” the press service said.

It is noted that the truck driver violated the traffic rules and drove out on the track with a prohibitive traffic light in front of an approaching freight train.

The driver applied emergency braking, but the collision could not be avoided.

According to preliminary data, the locomotive and 14 carriages of the train went down.

Currently, the passenger train # 8 on the Omsk - Vladivostok route is being delayed.

In July, in the Amur region, four people died in a collision of freight trains.
