The video shows the two trains moving towards each other on the same track, before ramming into each other. The impact of the collision was such that it lifted several bogies of the MMTS trains off the tracks.
The MMTS was coming from Lingampally and was headed towards Falaknuma when around 10.30 am it collided with the express train coming from Kurnool which was heading to Secunderabad at Kanchegunda railway station yard. The collision apparently took place due to a fault with the signaling system. Therefore no alerts were sounded when both the trains landed on the same track. But as the trains were traveling at low speed the impact was reduced.
