    A 26-year-old man has been taken into police custody over the incident.

    Police allege he manoeuvred his jeep onto the tracks, wanting to end his life.

    However he is said to have changed his mind, got out his car and stood by as the train struck it.

    Apparentely he was found walking around the scene soon after saying 'I'm sorry, I'm sorry.'

    They need to start mounting anti-tank missles on locomotives...

    Death toll now up to at leat 9 killed, hundreds injured. Crash was caused by an SUV placed on the tracks. Looks like it was deliberate; whether it was a simple suicide by train or something larger is unclear at this time...
