Several dead after trains collide in Germany

Ten people have been killed and more than eighty injured after two trains collided head on at high speeds on Tuesday. 

The crash happened around 7 a.m. local time in Bad Aibling and Kolbermoor in Bavaria, near the German/Austrian border. It is thought that the trains were tavelling at speeds of up to 100km/h (62 mph).

Officials belive that the train drivers had no visual contact before the crash as the track in on a bend and they would have been unable to brake intime to stop the crash. 

Investigators will know what happened after they analyse the black boxes from both trains; the line that the crash happened on had a braking system designed to stop a train passing a red signal to prevent such crashes.
