As many as 7 people were killed as a high-speed train derailed and caught fire in Eckwersheim near Strasbourg in eastern France on Saturday.
According to Agence France-Presse, the incident was caused by “excessive speed” during a test run but police say the cause of the crash has yet to be determined.
Dozens of technicians were on board the plane for the test run, AFP reported, citing a top local official, Dominique Nicolas-Jane and another source “close to the investigation”.
A rescue team, including helicopters and “tens of rescue vehicles” arrived at the scene of the accident. Helicopters airlifted several people from the scene but the number of those injured remains unclear, according to RT.
