Probe opens into Bavaria train crash

Rail

Germany’s railway accident investigation board has opened a probe into the causes of a collision in Bavaria that killed 10 people this week.

Eisenbahn-Unfalluntersuchungsstelle des Bundes said it had started an investigation into the fatal crash that occurred shortly before 7am local time on Tuesday.

German officials said the commuter trains from Holzkirken and Rosenheim collided on a single track line equipped with an automatic train protection system.

Dozens of people were injured in the crash and 15 helicopters were used in the relief effort.
