Bavaria: drivers after a collision with a train are still in mortal danger

A day after the collision between a car and a regional train in Bavaria, the 18-year-old driver is still in mortal danger. A police spokeswoman said Tuesday morning. DB Regio announced on Twitter that the railway line between Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Eschenlohe, about 16 kilometers to the north-east, has been blocked.

According to the first findings of the police, the car had driven onto the tracks despite the closed barrier. There it collided with a regional train, with the driver of the car being seriously injured. The driver and passengers on the train were unharmed, police said.

It was only on Sunday morning that there was a similar incident at a level crossing in Neustadt am Rübenberge near Hanover, the cause of which is also still unclear. There, too, a car drove onto the level crossing despite the half barriers being closed, was hit by a regional train at full speed and dragged along hundreds of meters. The 22-year-old driver of the car and two young passengers aged 20 and 22 died.
