Another 15 have been injured following the incident in Egypt.
The Health Ministry said rescue workers and 30 ambulances are working at the scene.
A spokesperson for the minister of health said victims were taken to local hospitals.
The incident happened outside a train station in Kom Hamada.
The crash comes months after 41 people died in a train collision near the coastal city of Alexandria last August.
That was the deadliest train accident in Egypt since a November 2013 collision between a train and a bus killed 27 people south of Cairo.
In 2002, 373 people died when a fire ripped through a crowded train, also south of the capital.
