Beijing - A high-speed bullet train collision in eastern China's Zhejiang province left 35 people dead and 210 injured, state-run news agency Xinhua reported Sunday.

One bullet train stopped on the tracks because of a power outage from a lightning strike. Another bullet train traveling in the same direction rammed into the first train from behind and caused four of its cars to fall from an elevated bridge, the radio report said.

The struck train was carrying 1,300 to 1,400 passengers, officials said.
