BBC News --> Germany train crash: Several killed near Bavarian town of Bad Aibling

Quote
At least nine people were killed and scores more injured, police say, after two passenger trains collided in the German state of Bavaria.

The head-on crash happened near Bad Aibling, a spa town about 60km (37 miles) south-east of Munich.

The trains' operator said both trains had partially derailed and were wedged into each other.

Emergency teams, some winched in by helicopter, worked for hours to free casualties from the wreckage ...

The drivers of both trains and two train guards were among those killed, regional broadcaster Bayerischer Rundfunk said, quoting police.

The cause of the collision is not yet known ...

Mr Dobrindt said the stretch of line had an automatic braking system designed to halt any train that passed a stop signal. Two of the three data recorders - "black boxes" - on board the trains have already been recovered, he said.

Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann told the same conference it was "difficult to comprehend" how such a crash could happen given the amount of investment in railway safety following previous train accidents ...
