Video: Moment Train Crashes Into Tourist Coach

Three people have been killed and dozens of others were injured after a train crashed into a double-decker coach in Thailand, police say.

CCTV caught the moment of the fatal collision on an unguarded railway crossing in Nakhon Pathom province, W of Bangkok on Sunday.

The coach driver was reportedly killed and two passengers later died in hospital, while around thirty were injured.

The vehicle carrying Thai tourists was seen travelling towards the intersection but then appeared to stop on the rail line just as the train was approaching at high-speed.

It then collided with the vehicle, knocking it ninety degrees.

Another video from a different angle showed the coach being hit and being dragged along for some distance in a cloud of dust.

There appeared to be number lights or other warning devices at the junction.

The coach was taking a grouping of workers from a nearby factory to the southern island of Koh Samui for a holiday trip, police said.
