Just In: Black Easter As 36 Persons Died In A Ghastly Accident


On Friday morning, 36 people were reported killed and 72 injured when a Taiwan train derailed in a tunnel after hitting a truck.
The train, 408 Taroko Express, was travelling from Taipei to Taitung in Taiwan carrying about 350 tourists when it came off the rails north of Hualien county.
The 408 is one of the fastest on Taiwan’s regular train network, reaching speeds of up to 130km per hour.
The Guardian reported that the transport ministry said 36 passengers “had no signs of life,” and 44 others sent to hospital with injuries.
