Rescuers carry a victim from the site of a train collision in Zibo, in east China's Shandong province Monday. A high-speed passenger train jumped the tracks and slammed into another train early Monday, killing at least 70 people and injuring more than 400. The official Xinhua News Agency said the line reopened to traffic early today, about 20 hours after the crash. Xinhua today reported an investigation panel set up by the State Council, or Cabinet, said speeding was responsible for deadly collision - the train was traveling 81 miles per hour before the accident, far above the section's speed limit of 50 miles per hour.
