The collision happened at Pak Tho station at around 6.40pm.

 

Officials said the Songkhla bound passenger train hit a cargo train head on, with initial investigations citing signal failure as the cause of the crash.

 

The injured were taken to local hospitals.

 

The State Railway of Thailand said there will be disruption to services heading south.

I was under the impression that there was a physical key passed through a lock to prevent this happening? 

Single line rail is safe with this system of lockout so someone has bypassed the switch or they are not using it? 

Signal failure if that is the only control mechanism is a possibility
