Two people have died this Wednesday after the van in which they were traveling was run over by a freight train at the height of the municipality of Manzanares, in Ciudad Real.
Sources from the Government Delegation in Castilla-La Mancha have informed Efe that the winding of the train to the van has occurred at kilometer 184.2 of the conventional railway line between Alcazar de San Juan and Ciudad Real, which coincides with the level crossing of Herrera de la Mancha.
As a result of the accident, the railway line is cut in this direction of movement.
The same sources have indicated that an investigation has been opened to try to clarify the reasons why, according to the first investigations, the van has invaded the road and, when passing the train, has been run over, killing two people.
For their part, sources of the emergency service 112 have informed Efe that the accident has occurred around 7.40 on Wednesday and that, despite the impact, the train has not derailed or its passengers have been damaged.
Agents from the Civil Guard, Local Police, firefighters from Manzanares, a UVI and Renfe personnel have moved to the scene.
