On Sunday, a strange incident happened. A Mumbai local crashed into a platform at the speed of 30 kmph while entering Churchgate Railway Station, injuring five people, reports Indian Express.
With the train overshooting its course, and the overhead wires snapping immediately as a result of serious friction, S K Sood, General Manager, Western Railway, said they were looking at the incident as a “manual error”.
While there was no fatality, the train hub had transformed into a sight-seeing point by evening. The CCTV visual released shows shocked commuters jumping off the train, even as waiting passengers try to run, and the overhead wires snapping.
Five hours after the collision, the guard and the loco inspector were suspended. The restoration operation was launched soon.
