Train derails in central France, 5 injured

Police say a train has hit a trailer filled with hay and derailed in central France, leaving five people injured.

A police official in the Haute-Vienne region says a tractor pulling a hay-filled trailer overturned on the train tracks, and was hit by a train from Paris to Cahors.

The train derailed about 12 kilometers (7 miles) south of Limoges.

The official said five people were injured, and other passengers were being evacuated from the train. An investigation was opened.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because of agency policy.

The incident comes days after a train carrying liquefied gas derailed in Viareggio, Italy, setting off a massive explosion that destroyed nearby homes and left 22 dead.
