The death toll from a train crash at a station in central China has risen to more than 90, a state-run newspaper reported. The crash took place Tuesday on the Beijing-Guangzhou railway when a northbound passenger train plowed into another train that was stopped at a station in Hunan province. Thirteen cars were knocked off the tracks. The crash was unrelated to a recent decision to raise train speeds on major railways, the China Daily reported.
