TOKYO: An empty commuter train jumped the track near Tokyo on Sunday, slightly injuring its driver and conductor, railway officials said. The out-of-service train derailed after smashing into a maintenance carriage left lying on the line between the Japanese capital and Kawasaki, a nearby city. The collision took place at around 1 a.m. at the station in Kawasaki, a satellite city south of Tokyo, after the last train on the Tokyo-Yokohama commuter line had passed, officials said. The first and second cars of the 10-car train derailed on impact, trapping the only two men on board, but they were rescued later by firefighters who broke into the train by smashing windows, railway officials said.
