Fourteen people were injured when a passenger train ploughed into a tractor near the town of Písek on Tuesday. The tractor driver allegedly ignored the red lights on the crossing. Six people were taken to hospital, eight were treated by paramedics on the spot.
The track will remain closed to traffic for the rest of the day and Czech Railways has arranged a replacement bus service for passengers.
