Two people were killed and 18 others injured when a regional train collided with a truck in northern Italy on Wednesday, Reuters reports.
The train, running on a line that connects the cities of Turin and Ivrea in Italy’s northern Piedmont region, crashed into a freight truck that had broken through a crossing barrier and become stuck on the tracks, according to Italy’s state train company.
The driver of the train was killed, Reuters said, along with the driver of a vehicle accompanying the truck.
Italy’s railway network has seen a series of deadly accidents recently. In Jan., a packed commuter train derailed near Milan, killing three people. In 2016, a head-on collision between two trains in Italy’s southern Puglia region killed 23 people.
