BERLIN – Police say they are no longer looking for a missing person in the train crash that has killed 10 and injured dozens in a rural area in southern Germany.
Police spokesman Stefan Sonntag said Wednesday that after contacting all hospitals in the region, authorities concluded that there was nobody missing after Tuesday's head-on crash on a single-line track in Bad Aibling in Bavaria — as earlier reports had suggested.
At the scene of the crash, investigators and emergency personnel started working on removing the wreckage and looking into possible causes for the accident.
Authorities are trying to determine why multiple safety measures failed and are examining possible technical errors and human failure.
Sonntag said investigators were also still working on the identification of the victims.
