At least 5 killed as train derails during testing in eastern France
ECKWERSHEIM (France): A high-speed train undergoing a trial on a new high-speed line from Paris to Strasbourg derailed on Saturday near the German border, killing five people, the local prefecture said.
Pictures from a Reuters photographer at the scene showed the locomotive partly submerged in a canal alongside the tracks with other parts lying broken and detached in a field beside the track. Medical units including police divers were on the scene.
The second section of the Paris-Strasbourg high-speed TGV line on which the crash happened is set to open for service in April 2016.
