MOSCOW, July 15. /ITAR-TASS/. The death toll in Tuesday’s accident in the Moscow subway has risen to 22, a source in Moscow’s medical circles said.
“The overall number of those injured totals 162; 22 of them died,” the source said.
According to the source, there are currently 129 people injured in the accident in 15 hospitals. “Outpatient assistance was provided to another 11 injured,” the source said.
The tragic accident took place at 8:39 a.m. Moscow time (4:39 UTC) on Tuesday on the stretch of the west-bound "blue" line of the Russian capital’s metro network between the Park Podedy and Slavyansky Bulvar stations.
A rapidly moving train crashed entrapping all of its passengers in the underground tunnel after three of its cars derailed due to reasons that investigators have yet to establish.
