Ankara, Dec 13 (IANS) At least nine people were killed and 47 injured on Thursday when a high-speed train collided with a locomotive in Turkey’s capital city of Ankara, according to authorities.

The accident occurred at around 6.30 a.m. at the Marsandiz railway station, around 8 km from Ankara’s main station, the BBC reported.

The train was going from Ankara to the city of Konya.

The local governor’s office said the train’s driver was among the victims, while three of the injured were said to be in a serious condition.
