“In the southern district of Munich, two S-Bahn trains collided in the area of ​​the Ebenhausen-Schäftlarn S-Bahn station. There are numerous emergency services on the spot, there are injured people, the route is currently completely closed,” reported the first statement from the Munich Police.

While some media say that about 14 passengers were injured (several of them seriously), others say that the number of injured may rise to 30.



The driver of one of the convoys had to be freed by the rescue services after being trapped in the cabin, and the Police also reported the use of helicopters and more than two hundred emergency personnel to continue the rescue work.

Preliminary reports from the authorities indicate that about 100 passengers were traveling inside both trains, including schoolchildren.

These same two convoys were about to collide in the same area in August last year, but on that occasion they were able to stop in time, German newspapers reported.
