October 16, 1994|Associated Press

COWDEN, England — Two passenger trains collided in dense morning fog near this south England village Saturday, killing five people and injuring 11, officials said.

Both train drivers were among the dead, said Rail Track, the company which operates the single-track line.

The trains, each with six cars and carrying only 19 passengers between them, should have passed each other on a loop further up the rail track.

Cowden is about 24 miles south of central London.
