A train driver was killed and another injured in a derailment yesterday during a test run on the second subway line in Kunming, Yunnan province.

The derailment caused an air conditioning unit to fall from the ceiling in the lead car of the train, killing the driver, according to a statement from the Kunming Rail Transit Company to Xinhua.

The train's speed at the time of the accident was not given, but it is likely that the brakes had been applied as the derailment occurred when the train was approaching Lidou South Station at about 9am and was about 500 metres from the platform.
