PRAGUE (Sputnik) — The force of the collision was so great that the truck’s engine was recovered at a distance of more than 650 feet from the crash site. The passenger train traveled a further 1.2 miles before the brake engaged.

"Two people died in the collision and more than 20 were wounded, some of them are in a critical condition at a hospital," spokesman Lukas Humpl told reporters.

Ambulances, fire engines and helicopters have been dispatched to the scene. Rescuers are pulling crash survivors from the wreckage of the train's carriages.
