One person died and five were injured in a collision between a high-speed train and a locomotive in the Czech Republic.

The driver of a high-speed train was killed in a collision with a locomotive in the Czech Republic.

The accident happened early Monday morning in the town of Bohumin, shortly after the departure of the Pendolino express to Prague.

Four employees of the Czech Railways who were on the locomotive were injured, as was another worker on the train.

Rescuers say no passengers were injured in the crash.

It is not yet clear whether the locomotive was in motion at the time of the head-on collision.

The Czech Railway Inspection Service stated that the high-speed train was on the wrong track at the time of the crash and the accident could have been caused by human error.
