Keikyu Line Resumes Services After Crash


Keikyu Line resumes services after crash

The operator of a passenger train involved in a deadly collision with a truck in Yokohama, near Tokyo, has resumed some of the services it suspended after the incident on Thursday.

Workers for railway operator Keikyu Corporation removed the wrecked train cars and truck by 5 a.m. on Saturday.

The operator also checked the power system and conducted a test run before resuming partial operations in the afternoon.

The express train slammed into a large truck stranded on a rail crossing near Kanagawa-shimmachi Station on the Keikyu Line two days ago.

The first three carriages of the eight-car train derailed.

The 67-year-old driver of the truck died and 35 people were injured.
