KOTA KINABALU: A huge explosion ripped through a commuter train with 200 passengers after it collided with a fuel tanker at an ``unmanned'' railway crossing near a petrol station in Kepayan here. At least eight people were seriously injured.

Most passengers scrambled out from the rear driver's compartments as they fled the inferno that spread almost immediately following the impact between the four carriages and the Shell tanker.

But 34 of the 200 passengers could not be traced though police have ascertained, as of 7.45pm, that no one else was inside the wrecked carriages.

However, a detailed search is being carried by police, firemen and Sabah Railway staff.

Sabah Police Commissioner Datuk Hamza Taib said the train impacted the tank section of the lorry carrying some 27,000litres of petrol as it was heading into the Shell station to deliver the fuel.

Upon impact, the first carriage derailed while the second unit landed atop the tanker that exploded at the crossing which Sabah Railways director Mohd Zin Mohd Said had classified as ``illegal.''


Hamza said at 7.45pm that there were no deaths ``as yet'' and they have detained the driver of the oil tanker for questioning while the train driver Ali Ramli, 50, escaped injuries.

Ambulances carrying the injured to the hospital were trapped in a massive traffic snarl due to motorists slowing down or stopping indiscriminately to watch the accident and the situation was further aggravated by a heavy thunderstorm.

The colonial railway is the only commercial rail line in Borneo Island that operates services from Kota Kinabalu to west coast towns and interior Tenom.

``This is the worst mishap in our history,'' said Mohd Zin.

Eight Hurt In Massive Explosion Due To Train-fuel Tanker Collision

KOTA KINABALU, Oct 31 (Bernama) -- No fatalities were reported, but so far eight people were injured in a massive explosion due to a collision between a train and a fuel tanker in front of the Kota Kinabalu International Airport, Monday.

Sabah Police Commissioner Datuk Hamza Taib told reporters at the scene that the rest of the passengers in the carriages either managed to escape when the collision occurred about 5.30pm or rescued when firefighters arrived.

The victims were immediately sent to Queen Elizabeth Hospital for treatment, he said.

According to Hamza, the fuel tanker was crossing the railway track to send fuel to a gas station, but was not quick enough to completely cross the track, causing the train to ram into it.


He said the 41-year-old driver was taken by police for further investigation, while the 51-year-old train driver sustained injuries on his legs.

Sabah Fire and Rescue Department director Nordin Fauzi said five fire-engines were despatched from the Kota Kinabalu, Penampang and Lintas fire stations.

He said they were also assisted by a water tanker and two fire-engines from the Airport Fire and Rescue Unit.

A Malaysia Airlines staff, Busri Asad, 39, related seeing some passengers escaping from the train windows when the collision occurred.

"I also saw people running to the back of the carriages. About 10 minutes after the collision, there was an explosion and a massive fire broke out," he said.

Busri was across the road from the incident after he finished work at the airport.

A press secretary to a state minister, Arshad Hussin, said he was about 700 metres away from the scene.

"I was on my way home and wanted to fill petrol at the gas station. But I decided to stop my car on the roadside when I realised there was a massive fire and heavy smoke from the gas station.

"The traffic (on the three-lane road) stopped before the accident site and other vehicles moved to the far right lane, making the left lane vacant," he said, adding that he also heard two explosions.

He also noticed people in the train running to the back of the carriages.

i think they should reroute the railway and implement electric train
the current route is too dangerous
it's very near to petrol station, hardware factories, shop lots, housing area and military camp

There's no more space along that route.

Realignment will be hard.

Perhaps they should consider elevated line.
