Rail accident in Bastuträsk

A freight train from Green Cargo was to be shunted to the timber terminal in Bastuträsk. The locomotive was located at the rear (in relation to the direction of the movement of the shunting set). The driver stood on a footstep on the first wagon in the direction of movement and maneuvered the shunting set by radio-control. One of the axles of the wagon derailed. The driver fell off the wagon and was hit by it. He was seriously injured and died.
