Ten dead as commuter trains collide in Germany
From: CNA
Date: 10/02/16

BAD AIBLING, Germany: German authorities were on Tuesday (Feb 9) investigating how two commuter trains collided head-on, leaving at least 10 dead and dozens injured, despite having been fitted with automatic braking systems to prevent accidents.

Media reports said human error was to blame for the high-speed crash near the southern spa town of Bad Aibling, where one of the trains sliced into the other, ripping a hole in its side.

Rescuers were still searching for one missing person in the mangled wreckage in a wooded area, although police said there was now little hope of finding the victim alive.
