A passenger train crashed into another train early Wednesday near the Taj Mahal in northern India, killing at least four people and trapping scores of people in a smashed coach, an official said.

Rescuers used gas cutters to open the smashed rear coach following the collision near Agra, the site of the Taj Mahal about 130 miles (210 kilometers) southeast of New Delhi, said Rajesh Bajpai, a railway spokesman.

One of the trains, Mewar Express, was stopped at a red signal when another train rammed into it from behind, Sharma told The Associated Press.

Rescuers recovered four bodies so far but the death toll could rise, he said.

Ten injured passengers were taken to a nearby hospital, Bajpai said.
