4 posts in this topic

Five people have been killed as a train derailed and caught fire in Eckwersheim near Strasbourg in France, AFP reported. Rescue teams are working at the site.

A high-speed TGV train derailed in Eckwersheim in the Bas-Rhin department of Alsace in northeastern France mid-afternoon on Saturday.

Apparently, the accident was caused by "excessive speed," AFP reports.

Local media reports there are injured, but the numbers aren’t clear yet. Several people have been airlifted from the scene on a helicopter, RTL reports.
