|Hundreds of passengers injured in Shanghai subway crash!|
|Sep 28, 2011 02:10|
|Yesterday afternoon, a subway train slammed into the rear of another train in a transit line in Shanghai near Yuyuan Garden, a famous tourist attraction in Shanghai. The accident has injured 284 passengers according to the Chinese media. Luckily, no passenger died in the accident. |
Now 189 people have been discharged from the hospitals. 95 people are still observed in the hospital.
Did you remember 7.23 Wenzhou Train Crash? 40 people were killed and nearly 200 were injured in the accident. The officials once said the bad weather and a signal failure were blamed for the tragedy. The Chinese media reports that a signal failure happened in accident too. Coincidentally, the subway signal system is the same as that on the high speed rail. They are both from the same company.
The Shanghai Government has contacted the signal system supplier to learn the details. But the cause of the accident is still under investigation.

|GUEST76218, good analysis. |
The company who provides the signal system already clarified that the accident had nothing to do with their signal system. Somebody broke the rules and caused the accident. It was a human error.
