At least three people were killed and over 50 injured when two passenger trains collided in Thailand's seaside town of Hua Hin early on Sunday.

The accident occurred at 3 am at the Nongkae railway station in Hua Hin, police said.

The collision took place when a Langsuan-Thonburi train scheduled to pass through the Nongkae station was directed onto a wrong track and rammed into a stationary Bangkok-Yala train.

The driver and two workers of the parked train died in the accident.

Some 50 injured passengers were rushed to nearby hospitals.
