Two regional trains crashed in Bavaria, near Bad Aibling south of Munich, killing at least 10 people and injuring more than 100 on Tuesday morning.
The head-on collision caused one train to derail. Footage from the site showed the front cars of both trains wedged into each other, their blue compartments torn open and debris covering the surrounding area.
Authorities from the German Railway Agency and local police teams at the site have yet to identify the exact cause of the collision on the single-track route, which connects the town of Rosenheim with Munich.
Two of the three black boxes aboard the trains have already been found, Transport Minister Alexander Dobrindt, who visited the crash site, told reporters.
