At least 46 people were known dead and more than 100 were injured after a Brazilian commuter train passed through a red warning light near a suburban train station during a driving rain and slammed into a second passenger train, officials said. The heavy rain and a 24-foot drop next to the tracks made it difficult for rescue workers to reach the victims.
