One man killed in Naples train crash


A passenger train has derailed in the southern Italian city of Naples, killing one person and injuring up to 40 others.

At least 13 are said to be seriously hurt.

The four-carriage train came off the tracks some 400 metres from the city’s central rail station.

It was carrying passengers from Sorrento, a hugely popular tourist destination on the Amalfi coast.

According to Italy’s ANSA news agency, one survivor said the train was going too fast on the tracks and was making a turn as it toppled off.

The train belonged to Circumvesuviana, a regional company which serves Naples and the Campania region around the city.
