Assessment of the derailment of the TGV Est during a test trip

Back on the circumstances of the derailment of the TGV Est near Strasbourg last Saturday on a high-speed section during a test trip. The toll is now 11 dead and four seriously injured. The TGV was travelling at a higher speed than normal at 367 km per hour. The train’s front engine veered to the left after a curve and struck the rear of the bridge over the Marne-au-Rhin canal before toppling over. The experienced driver respected the speed requested for this test run. 53 people were on board this test TGV: technicians, railway workers, executives and guests including four children. Images of the accident site and excerpt from the press conference of Alexandre Chevrier, Deputy Prosecutor of the Republic in Strasbourg returns to the circumstances of the derailment.
