TBILISI, October 23 (Itar-Tass) —— Two freight trains collided in the Ozurgeti district of western Georgia, the local authorities told the media.
According to the preliminary information, three guards accompanying the trains were injured heavily and taken to the hospital. The collision halted the railroad traffic on the line.
A train carrying sugar from Batumi to Tbilisi hit a train carrying inert materials to western Georgia. The trains were moving slowly at the moment of the collision as they were approaching a station.
Causes of the accident are so far unknown. According to tentative findings, one of the locomotive drivers ignored red light.
Both locomotives and some cars came off the track, and the cargo spilled onto the ground.
The traffic was paralyzed for several hours. It is now restored.
The damage is preliminary estimated at $1 million. Detectives and representatives of the Georgian Railroad Authority are visiting the accident scene. The media said that the locomotive drivers deserted their trains after the collision.
