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.
