GAUHATI, India—A railway official says a train hit a bulldozer and derailed in northeastern India, killing three passengers.

S. Hajong says at least 16 people were injured when nine coaches of the train derailed after the crash at an unmanned crossing in Assam state.

The bulldozer got stuck while crossing the track, Hajong said Friday.

Local villagers and police have pulled all the passengers from the derailed cars.

The injured have been taken to hospitals in nearby Gauhati, Assam's capital.
