VLADIVOSTOK, June 20 (Itar-Tass) —— The accident of a freight train on the Trans-Siberian main line on June 19 supposedly was caused by bad technical condition of the train and also defects of the track, spokeswoman for the Far Eastern regional transport investigative department Natalia Salkina said on Wednesday.
