At least eight people are dead and 150 people injured after two trains collided head-on in southern Germany on Tuesday, according to police.
The regional trains apparently collided near Bad Aibling in Bavaria, with one or both of the trains reportedly derailing; that derailment overturned some train wagons, leading to at least 50 severe injuries among the casualties, the Associated Press reported.
“The current number of dead and injured is a snapshot,” federal police spokesman Stefan Brandl told media. “This can and will still change.”
German Federal Police spokesman Matthias Knott told the Associated Press that the accident unfolded “in an inaccessible region,” indicating that the crash was in a difficult to access area.
“Given the severity of the accident, we believe the two regional trains collided head-on at a low speed,” said Rainer Scharf with the Bavarian police.
