At least nine people were killed and five others injured after a passenger train crashed on Thursday into a minibus that was carrying workers to a factory.
Basri Guzeloglu, the local governor, said the train slammed into the vehicle at a level crossing near the Mediterranean port city of Mersin.
All the dead were in the vehicle. Three of the injured were said to be in a serious condition.
Guzeloglu said the cause of the accident would be investigated, but media reports suggested a signalling fault that saw the crossing’s barrier arms up at the time of the accident.
No one aboard the train, travelling from the southern city of Adana to Mersin, was hurt.
