Beschreibung

The Amagasaki rail crash occurred on 25 April, 2005 at around 09:18 local time (00:18 UTC), just after the local rush hour. The Rapid Service came off the tracks on the West Japan Railway Company (JR West) Fukuchiyama Line (JR Takarazuka Line) in Amagasaki, Hy go Prefecture, near Osaka, just before Amagasaki Station on its way for D shisha-mae via the JR T zai Line and the Gakkentoshi Line (a seven-car commuter train), and the front two carriages rammed into an apartment building. The first carriage slid into the first floor parking garage and as a result took days to remove. Of the roughly 700 passengers (initial estimate was 580 passengers) on board at the time of the crash, 106 passengers, in addition to the driver, were killed and 555 others injured. Most passengers and bystanders have said that the train appeared to have been travelling too fast. The incident was Japan's most serious since the 1963 Yokohama rail crash in which two passenger trains collided with a derailed freight train, killing 162 people.
