At Least 36 Dead and Scores Injured in Fiery Greece Train Collision

At least 36 people were killed and 85 injured after two trains collided in Greece on Wednesday. The fiery crash occurred in the town of Adendro, located near the city of Thessaloniki.

The Greek Fire Brigade said that 26 people were killed and at least 85 were injured in the crash. The cause of the collision is still under investigation, but authorities believe that a technical malfunction may have been the cause.

The train collision is the deadliest in Greece since 2017, when a train derailed near the village of Mandra, killing four people and injuring at least 10.

Witnesses reported hearing a loud bang and seeing flames rising from the wreckage. Local residents rushed to the scene to help the injured and provide assistance.

The Greek Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, expressed his condolences to the families of the victims and said that the government would provide support to those affected by the tragedy.

The crash has sparked outrage among Greeks, who have been protesting the government’s lack of investment in public transport infrastructure. The government has promised to invest in rail safety, but critics say that more needs to be done to prevent similar tragedies from occurring in the future.
