Part of a train was derailed at Tišnov outside Brno on Thursday morning. The last two wagons of an express train heading from Prague to Brno came off the tracks when the train took a turn at a switch but did not turn over. Fire officers evacuated 150 people from the train and there were no injuries. The cause of the accident is now being investigated. It follows a number of such incidents in recent weeks in the Czech Republic.
