Several people have been killed, and around 100 injured, following a collision between two passenger trains, in Germany.

Two passenger trains have collided, in the German state of Bavaria, killing several people and injuring about 100 others, according to local police.

The head-on crash occurred at Bad Aibling, a spa town approximately 60km southeast of Munich. One of the trains was derailed in the crash and several carriages were overturned, German media reported.

Police said rescue teams were trying to free people still trapped in the wreckage.

“This is the biggest accident we have had in years in this region and we have many emergency doctors, ambulances and helicopters on the scene,” police spokesman Stefan Sonntag said.

He said the two regional trains had collided on a single track between Rosenheim and Holzkirchen shortly before 07:00 local time (06:00 GMT).
