Chinese authorities say four people are dead and two more missing after a train carrying aluminum ore derailed in a central province, the latest in a series of industrial accidents to strike the country.

The city government of Gongy in Henan province said the train crashed into a village home after jumping the tracks around 10 p.m. Wednesday.

The 25-car train is owned by a subsidiary of Aluminum Corporation of China and ran on a 22-kilometer (14-mile) track built in the 1950s specially for transporting ore. TV footage showed tangled cars from the train spread across a forested area.

In March, 78 people were killed in a blast at a chemical plant.
