PATNA, India (AP) — A passenger train has derailed in eastern India, killed at least four passengers and injuring dozens. All 21 coaches of the North-East Express Train derailed near a railroad station in Bihar state late Wednesday. Two of the coaches overturned. Local residents rushed to the scene and helped passengers exit the derailed coaches. A railroad official who was on the train said most injuries occurred in one of the derailed coaches. Early reports said 70 passengers were injured. A magistrate said 31 of the injured were hospitalized. Others were able to go home after medical attention. More than 12 million people ride 14,000 trains daily across India, where crashes are often human error and outdated equipment.
