Fifth body found in train wreckage north of Tokyo

first_imgTOKYO – The death toll in a train derailment in northern Japan rose to five as rescuers searched the snow-covered wreck today in which they feared more passengers could still be trapped. All six cars of the train – reportedly traveling up to 60 mph – derailed Sunday in rural Yamagata prefecture, 180 miles north of Tokyo, during a blizzard. The first three cars flipped onto their sides and skidded along the snow embankment. Authorities had earlier concluded that four people died, but renewed their search for victims after reports three other passengers were missing. Workers later spotted the head and shoulder of a passenger who was confirmed dead, police said. The president of East Japan Railway Co., operator of the ill-fated express train, visited the crash site Tuesday to lay flowers for the dead, and the government called for a review of railway lines vulnerable to strong wind gusts.

The derailment raised questions about why the train was traveling when high-speed winds were registered in the area. The train wreck came in the same year as Japan’s worst since 1963. On April 25 in Amagasaki in western Japan, a major train crash killed 107 people and injured more than 500 others. Takeshi Kakiuchi, the president of West Japan Railway Co., the company operating that train, announced separately Tuesday that he would resign to take responsibility for the April crash. The company chairman, Shojiro Nanya, will also resign, spokesman Makoto Masamoto said. High speed was blamed in the April crash, and an investigation showed drivers under pressure to stick to timetables sometimes run trains too fast. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
