I opened the homepage of QQ news, finding a piece of horrible news which shocked me most. A train crash happened on Monday.
A high-speed train T195 from Beijing to Qingdao derailed in Zibo at about 4:40 AM on Monday and smashed into a train 5034 running from Yantai to Xuzhou, causing the latter to veer off its tracks. At least 12 cars from the two trains derailed. The accident killed 71 and injured 416.
A preliminary investigation suggested the train from Beijing was running at 131 kilometers per hour at the time of the accident, while the speed limit of that section was 80 km per hour. It happened just three days before the May Day holiday, when millions of Chinese holidaymakers will travel by train.
Let us express our heartfelt condolences to the families of the deceased in the accident. Wish such things not happening again!
