Poland Train Crash Kills 16, Injures 58

Stockbyte/Thinkstock(WARSAW) -- Sixteen people died and 58 were injured on Saturday night in Poland’s worst rail crash in decades.

The Telegraph reports that a Krakow-bound express train from Warsaw collided with another train near Szczekociny.

“This is our most tragic train disaster in many, many years,” Polish prime minister, Donald Tusk, said.

An unnamed American woman was among the victims killed.

Polish prosecutors opened an investigation to determine how one of the trains ended up on the wrong tracks.
