Japanese train crashed into an apartment building killing at least 50 people. It is one of the worst train accidents in Japan within the past decades.

The train derailed and crashed into the building just 6 metres from the railroad. However, the reason for the accident is not clear yet. But railway officials said that the calculations show that the train must have travelled with doubble speed.

Nearly 300 people were injured in this accident. The train was carrying a bit less than 600 passengers. The driver had only 11 months of experience.
