43 Dead, Stationmaster Arrested: Greece’s Deadliest Train Crash in Recent Times

At least 43 people have been killed and dozens more injured in a train crash in Greece on Tuesday morning. The stationmaster of the train involved in the crash has been arrested.

The death toll continues to rise as emergency services search for more victims of the crash. The accident happened near the town of Adendro, in the northern part of the country.

At least 38 passengers were killed in the collision between two trains, according to Greek authorities. In addition, five railway workers were killed in the crash.

Greek Transport Minister Kostas Karamanlis has resigned in the wake of the crash, citing his “moral responsibility” for the tragedy.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation, but authorities have indicated that human error may have been a factor.

This is the deadliest train crash in Greece in recent years. In 2017, a crash near the town of Mandra killed three people and injured 10.

The Greek government has declared a three-day period of national mourning for the victims of the crash.
