17 reported killed after train derails in Taiwan

The Taiwan Railways Administration confirmed the toll and said more than 70 people had also been injured in the accident in northeastern Yilan county.

The Puyuma Express No. 6432 bound for Taitung from Shulin Station with 366 passengers on board derailed at 4:50 p.m. local time at Su'aoxin Station in Yilan County.

Soldiers were removing bodies and attempting to identify them, Chen added, but nightfall was complicating rescue work. Five cars were turned on their sides.

Onlookers said some passengers were forced to windows in order to escape the train.

More than 120 soldiers joined firefighters in their rescue work, tending to the injured and examining the wreckage for signs of more survivors.

A government spokesperson stated that it is now unclear how many people were trapped in the train, adding that most of the deaths were in the first auto.
