A Turkish high speed train has collided with another locomotive and crashed into a pedestrian overpass at a train station in Ankara, killing seven people and injuring 43, the local governor has said.
Video footage on Thursday showed emergency workers at the snow-laden scene, working to rescue people from carriages trapped beneath the mangled metal wreckage of an overpass at the Marsandiz train station, to the west of the Turkish capital.
The accident occurred around 6.30am (0330 GMT) as the train was travelling between Ankara and the central Turkish province of Konya.
The Marsandiz station is around 8km from the main Ankara train station.
Governor Vasip Sahin told reporters at the scene that the crash was caused by the high-speed train hitting a locomotive which carries out track inspections.
The train driver was reported among those who died.
It was not clear at what speed the trains were travelling when the crash occurred, but it occurred at a station where the Ankara-Konya train does not stop.
