Rescue workers at the scene of the train crash near Bad Aibling yesterday

The accident took place on a single-track rail between the towns Rosenheim and Holzkirchen, 35 miles south of Munich.

Human error is still being investigated as a cause of the collision; but officials assume both drivers had no visual contact before the crash as it took place on a bend.

Speaking at a press conference in Bad Aibling, Bavaria, transport minister, Alexander Dobrindt, said the drivers “did not have eye contact and neither had braked before they crashed into each other.”

Rescue workers have found two black boxes and are searching for a third.

Mr Dobrindt said these black boxes will likely hold the answer as to why the disaster occurred.
