One dead as Dutch train hits crane at Dalfsen

The BBC reports that a passenger train has derailed near the Dutch town of Dalfsen, leaving one person dead, officials say.

The train hit a crane on a crossing, tilted over and went into a field, leaving several carriages lying on their sides.

Residents said the crane had been crossing the line, east of the city of Zwolle, when the train ran into it.

The local mayor said one person was dead but it not yet known how many others are hurt.

Photos of the crash, in Dalfsen, 75 miles east of Amsterdam, show several passenger cars on their side half on the track and half in a field.
