Colisión de trenes letal

By Duncan Mil

March 1, 2023 - Un trende pasajeros con cientos de personas chocó en el norte de Grecia a alta velocidad conun tren de carga que venía en sentido contrario, matando a 32 personas y lesionando por lo menos a 85.

Multiple cars derailed, and at least three burst into flames after the collision near the town of Tempe.

“There were many big pieces of steel,” Vassilis Polyzos, a resident who was one of the first people on the scene, told The Associated Press. “The trains were completely destroyed, both passenger and freight trains.”

“People, naturally, were scared -- very scared,” he said. “They were looking around, searching; they didn’t know where they were.”

The trains crashed just before the Vale of Tempe, a gorge that separates the regions of Thessaly and Macedonia.

The Greek government announced on Wednesday there will be a three-day official mourning following the deadliest train collision in the country’s history.
