The derailment of two suburban trains in Germany killed one person and injured at least ten.

The accident happened around 4:40 p.m. near the city’s Ebenhausen-Schaeftlarn railway station, southwest of Munich, Bavaria, when two commuter trains appeared to collide head-on.

“One person has died, there are injuries – in the double-digit range,” a Munich police spokesman said.

According to a police spokesman, more than 200 rescuers and police arrived at the scene by evening.

The best-selling German newspaper Bild previously reported that the train driver was trapped in the twisted wreckage.

Munich police said a section of track in the Bavaria region of Germany was closed due to the operation of buses replacing rails.

Train passengers told the Merkur newspaper that they felt a loud bang and were thrown forward.

According to a local radio report, last August two high-speed rail trains almost collided in the same area, but both drivers managed to stop in time.
