MOSCOW, May 27. /ITAR-TASS/. A truck breakdown was the cause of collision with a passenger train in the Moscow region, the press service of the Russian Emergencies Ministry (EMERCOM) told ITAR-TASS on Tuesday.
The accident occurred on the stretch between the Sofrino and Pushkino settlements. "A passenger train headed for Adler from Vorkuta collided with a truck at 2.50 pm Moscow time. No casualties have been reported," the press service said.
Rail traffic was halted as two repair teams were dispatched to the area.
"The engine driver did see the truck stuck on the railway crossing but the emergency braking failed to prevent the collision," an EMERCOM official said adding that the truck had run the red light.
The truck driver was not hurt, the official said.
