It's reported that train number 0G383 did not carry passengers at the time of the accident. "The operation commands should be passed on through a very strict system at various levels. However, the person in charge sent the order ... in a WeChat group without confirming the response of the operation team, which eventually led to the neglect of this message." At present, the person in charge has been dismissed and the accident is under further investigation.
