A train crashed in a tunnel in Taiwan killing at least four passengers and injuring 20 more this morning (April 2).

The vehicle was carrying 350 people travelling to Taitung when it derailed in the tunnel just north of Hualien. Passengers scrambled to climb out of the wreckage while the emergency services battle to reach those still trapped inside.

Taiwan’s fire service said in a statement that some of the carriages were crushed against the walls of the tunnel. Rescue efforts were continuing throughout the day.
