Bullet train accident: blackout How can China's Q1 economic performance be read? 5 months ago   01:08

FUKUOKA, JAPAN — A passenger was injured after a blackout halted three Japanese bullet trains travelling through the nation's western Fukuoka Prefecture on Saturday.

The Sakura 561 bullet train carrying some 500 people was travelling between the Kokura and Hakata stations on the Sanyo Shinkansen line when an aluminium plate weighing 6.5 kg reportedly fell off the train while it was travelling at a speed of 285 kph.

Authorities say the blackout occurred when the detached plate damaged a wire supplying electricity to the train's overhead cables, forcing the train to come to a sudden stop.

A 26-year-old female passenger reportedly sustained minor injuries in the incident.

The blackout caused the delay of 53 trains, affecting a total of 15,100 travellers.
