Transport on a train route from Prague to Ostrava was stopped for roughly an hour on Sunday after a fast-speed Pendolino train struck and killed a 68-year-old pedestrian on the track. It is unclear whether the man was caught off guard or had used the train to commit suicide. The fatal accident took place near the Sruby stop in the Ústí nad Orlicí area. An investigation is being conducted, a police spokeswoman confirmed.
