A Chiang Mai-Nakhon Sawan passenger train ran into a herd of water buffalo in Nakhon Sawan on Wednesday night, killing 21 of the animals and knocking some cars off the rails.



Police said the accident took place at 8pm, about two kilometres from Nakhon Sawan station.

It was 11.40pm before the carcasses were removed from the track and train cars replaced on the rails so the journey could resume.

Police were on Thursday still trying to determine who owned the buffalo.
