At least six people were killed and more than 100 injured when two trains collided in central Pakistan early Thursday, officials said.

The accident occurred near the city of Multan when a Karachi-bound passenger train rammed into a goods train which had stopped after running over a man crossing the railway track.

“At least six people have been killed and scores others wounded,” local district administration official Nadir Chattha told reporters.

Local state-run rescue service spokesman Abdul Jabbar told AFP the number of injured exceeded 100.

Railway official Saima Bashir blamed the accident on the passenger train driver, saying he failed to heed a red signal that went up after the goods train had stopped.
