MOSCOW, July 7 (Itar-Tass) - Investigators are considering two key theories of what caused the rail road accident in Russia’s southern Krasnodar Territory, a spokeswoman for the Southern transport investigation department of the Russian Investigations Committee told Itar-Tass on Sunday.

“Among the key theories are a malfunction of the rolling stock or defects of tra rail track,” she said.

According to the spokeswoman, a pre-investigation probe is underway. Investigators are interrogating witnesses and experts.

According to preliminary data, eleven cars of the Novosibirsk-Adler passenger train went off rails, five of them fell on the side. Twenty five people were taken to hospital, ten of them were later released.

A special train was formed at the station Kushchevskaya to take about 350 passengers of the ill-fortune train to their destination in Adler. About 250 passengers were taken to the station Krylovskaya by buses.

“The 19-car train with 350 passengers left Kushchevskaya at 22:00 Moscow time to catch the remaining passengers at Krylovskaya and take then to Adler,” a Russian emergencies ministry spokesman told Itar-Tass.
