While confirming Monday, the DRC Ministry of Transport, disclosed three of the freight train’s eight coaches derailed at about 7:00p.m. local time, in Lubudi, Lualaba Province, the same area where 75 people lost their lives in another derailment.

The train crushed the motorcyclist and his passenger, a middle-aged woman, when the motorcyclist tried to cross the rail line around 11am.
