Turkish media reports the incident happened near the Tekirdag area
An injured woman appeals for help at the crash site in Tekirdag province, with the overturned train visible in the background.
Photographs of the site showed collapsed ground under the rails.
The state-run Anadolu news agency quoted Akdag as saying search operations through the derailed train carriages had been completed Monday morning.
The train, with over 360 people on board, was travelling from the Edirne region on the Greek and Bulgarian borders to Istanbul's Halkali station when six of its carriages derailed in the Tekirdag region.
He told NTV: "There are a large number of injured and we have fatalities".
At least 100 ambulances were dispatched to the scene, Anadolu reported.
The local governor in Tekirdag, around 75 miles west of Istanbul, blamed heavy rain for the derailment.
The Turkish army said in a statement that it sent helicopters to the scene, while the Istanbul municipality on Twitter said 24 rescue workers and six rescue vehicles were on their way to provide assistance.
The Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications said in a statement the accident happened after the railway track slipped down from its original spot due to heavy downpour.
Health minister Ahmet Demircan said 318 were injured, with 124 of them taken to hospital.
President Tayyip Erdogan's office said he had received information from the ministers of transport and interior about the incident, and sent his condolences.
Private news channel CNN Turk said the accident was caused by a collapsed bridge.
