Dramatic CCTV footage shows packed passenger trains colliding head-on in India (VIDEO)

Dramatic CCTV footage shows packed passenger trains colliding head-on in India (VIDEO)

Two overcrowded trains rammed into each other in the central Indian city of Hyderabad, causing chaos among the passengers who rushed for safety. A CCTV camera captured the dramatic head-on collision.

A camera at the Kacheguda station in Hyderabad, home to around 6 million people, captured the moment a local commuter train smashed into a locomotive-powered express, sending both trains veering off the tracks. Seconds later, passengers jumped through the doors and ran away.

A total of 20 people were injured in the accident, according to local media, among them a train driver who was trapped in his cabin for hours.

Officials said at first that a technical glitch was to blame, but preliminary investigations indicate that the driver of the commuter train failed to notice a stop signal and started moving when the heavier express train was entering the station.
