At least 19 dead in South Africa train accident – media

At least 19 people were killed and 20 injured after a train collided with a truck in northeast South Africa, local radio said on Friday.

Police confirmed the accident in Mpumalanga province, about 400 km east of Johannesburg, but were unable to give details on the number of deaths.

“The truck carrying farm workers was hit by a train at a level crossing,” Mpumalanga police spokesman Joseph Mabusa told Reuters.

Mpumalanga is a major coal-producing region. It was not immediately clear whether the accident could disrupt coal shipments in Africa’s biggest economy.
