Three killed after passenger train collides with lorry and derails in Missouri

At least three people have been killed and around 50 people are said to have been injured after several carriages of a passenger train derailed on its way from Los Angeles to Chicago.

The Amtrak Southwest Chief train was carrying about 243 passengers and around 12 crew members when it collided with a lorry at an “uncontrolled” railroad crossing in a rural area of Missouri, said a highway patrol spokesman.
