A train crashed into a semitrailer in southern Australia Tuesday, leaving at least six people dead and dozens more seriously injured, police and media said. The passenger train bound for the city of Melbourne crashed into the truck at around 1:40 p.m. near the town of Kerang in northwestern Victoria state, said police spokeswoman Wendy Willingham. Willingham said six people were killed in the crash and at least six others were seriously injured, but local media reports put the figure as high as 40 injured, 12 seriously. Police said the driver of the truck had been taken to nearby Mildura hospital in critical condition.
