In the Trans-Baikal Territory, on the Aleur-Bushuley stretch, two freight trains collided, after which ten cars went off the rails. No one was injured as a result of the incident.

According to the press service of the Trans-Baikal Railway, the accident occurred on August 3 at about 23:00 local time. One freight train collided with the tail section of a freight train in front. About ten cars from both trains went off the rails, two of them, according to the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia for the Trans-Baikal Territory, are fuel tanks. A leak of aviation kerosene was recorded.

The movement of trains on the stretch was temporarily suspended due to the fact that the gauge of the neighboring track was violated, two supports of the contact network were damaged. Delay is expected for two passenger trains # 62 and # 12, which follow from the western direction. Emergency trains from Zilovo and Shilka stations, one fire train from Chernyshevsk station and a group of the Ekospas center from Chita are operating on site.
