Morocco: six killed in train-van collision

(MENAFN) While the van carried workers to a nearby factory, the train was carrying goods to be exported through tangier port, according to Xinhua.

Six people were killed on Saturday when a train collided with a van in the Moroccan city of Tangier northern Morocco.

The van did not respect the traffic signs and crossed the railroad crossing Beni Makada without paying attention, eyewitnesses told Xinhua.

The injured were moved to the hospital while investigations were launched to decide the circumstances and causes of the accident.

It's worth mentioning that although 3, 499 people were killed in road accidents in Morocco in 2017, these kinds of accidents are rare in Morocco.
