Bus, train collide killing at least 20 in Thailand

At least 20 people have been killed and 30 injured after a bus collided with a train in Thailand today.

Rescue workers are pictured near the site of the crash between a train and a bus in Chacheongsao province.

The accident happened near the Khlong Kwaeng Klan railway station and involved a tour bus carrying 60 factory workers to a Buddhist temple for a ceremony. The bus was going across a railway track when it was hit by a freight train around 8:05am.

The accident caused the bus to flip on its side, ripping off the roof and scattering metal around the scene.

The crossing has an alarm but no barrier to block traffic when a train is coming.
