Transportation authorities found a 10-centimeter crack on the undercarriage of a train car belonging to Osaka-based Nankai Electric Railway Co. on Tuesday, following the discovery of a similar 14-cm crack on the undercarriage of a train of the same model on Saturday.

The authorities also launched a probe into how the airport express trains went into service despite the cracks, deeming it a “serious incident” that could have led to an accident.
