BEIJING — A total of 15 people have been hospitalized after a train derailed in northeast China.

The railway bureau in Heilongjiang province says on its official microblog that the cause of Sunday’s pre-dawn accident is under investigation.

It says bureau officials responded to the accident, accompanied by police and fire and rescue services.

China has one of the world’s most extensive networks of railways, but accidents are extremely rare.
